How would your life be different if you were incapable of feeling fear? Would your life be better or worse than it is now?
Incapable of feeling fear, I feel like the Dark Knight already! The part where he faces the bats for the first time, except for me I wouldn’t enter that dark soul-sucking type of cave in the first place!
So if I was lacking the ability to have that emotion I don’t suppose it will be better for me. It would have been if I was entering a combat-zone or facing my mom with my maths test result. But for a nobody like me, feeling no fear will be not good.
Because if I didn’t feel that emotion then how come can I push myself? How would I try to become better, achieve that feeling when I finally faced mom with my test results and then reminiscence about it. I wouldn’t have the smug face of satisfaction like I do now!
Fear is essential. It helps to know our boundaries and what we need to do to overcome it. An anonymous saying which I recall now aptly describes and it goes like this,’Fear reminds us that some things are worth overcoming.‘
