In his book entitled Untie the Fear Knots of Your Heart, published by Liberty University Books in 2010, Dr. Ken Nichols explains how fears are generated from life events, and that knowing how to manage these fears can be far healthier than letting them control the heart. Dr. Nichols explains how fear is a normal response to life-altering events that one may face, and these fears can often tie one’s heart in knots. This steals the joy that Christ provides. Attempting to use the fear will not overcome the challenging event that originated the fear.
Throughout history, we have had to deal with conflict. How we deal with conflict can be most challenging of all. We all can find our strength to make it through treacherous times. A positive attitude can help a tremendous amount when dealing with conflict. An example of this can be found in The Diary of Anne Frank. Anne’s positive attitude and hope helped her overcome her distressing time in hiding during World War II. Other examples can also be found in the poem “Homesick”, and journal entries written by youngsters living during World War II. Having hope helps overcome obstacles that you may have thought was unfeasible to surpass. Hope can be found in everything. Fear can leave you petrified, but hope is the greatest strength that you can possess and hope will always overpower fear.
Fear is like a shadow, it may not always be seen, but it is always there. Fear is an aspect that is found in each and every life. It controls every move, and can be placed as a barrier between stepping forward. Fear follows everyone, the difference is who blocks the shadow, and who lets the light shine.In the novel the Chrysalids by John Wyndham, fear is a clear aspect that is visible throughout the story. Fear in the novel is shown through the fear of the unknown in the society of Waknuk.r. The people of Waknuk fear what is unknown and what is different. They follow their religion through fear, and they fear the power that surrounds them.
“Courage doesn’t mean you don’t get afraid. Courage means you don’t let fear stop you.” -Bethany Hamilton. This quote really emphasizes that courage has nothing to do with the absence of fear, yet how courage is pushing past and fighting that fear in their way. Jackie Robinson, Gary Paulsen, and Karara from Island of the Blue Dolphins all went through life-changing moments in their lives and faced it with courage by pushing past the fear standing in their way.
When you hear the word courage you think of some great warrior about to take down the most treacherous
Fear is a natural instinct that could potentially save your life, but that doesn't mean it’s always a good thing. Fear can lead to paranoia or obsession, and then it can engulf your sanity. If you become so fearful in the face of danger it could possibly cause paralysis, cloud your rational thought, or cause you to faint. However, it could potentially save your life by holding you back from irrational acts, making your more alert, or offering restraining from making hazardous decisions. In the stories “The Tell Tale Heart,” “The Pit and the Pendulum,” and “The Masque of Red Death,” the author, Edgar Allen Poe, uses figurative language, irony and symbolism to teach us that fean can distort the mind, and cause paranoia and obsession,
Survival is the ability to stay alive and make it through another day. This is the same thing that Rainsford must endure has his life is determined by his will to live, in the short story “The Most Dangerous Game” written by Richard Connell. In the Story Rainsford goes through an unfortunate event which he is left stranded on Ship Trap Island. He meets General Zaroff who is a man who kills human beings for his own pleasure. Zaroff introduces Rainsford to a game which Rainsford will be hunted and killed if found. With Rainsford’s strong passion to stay alive, he properly executes Zaroff and beats him at his at his own game. A major theme in this story is “A person will to survive should never be underestimated”.
Fear is an emotional response created amongst ourselves due to a sense of some sort of danger or threat. Fear is not only something one feels within but is also the root of the change in behavior. When fearing something or someone our first instinct is to hide or flee away from what is causing us to feel that way. It is an unpleasant emotion that only prevents a person from achieving their beliefs or goals.
Fear can be very advantageous when it comes to surviving. Fear inhibits you from doing risky actions that can put you and others in danger; it keeps you cautious and careful. Even though fear helps you when surviving, fear can harm you in life. Fear can cause paranoia that keeps you from enjoying life. You start to obsess over minimal things leading to hallucination. In Poe’s stories, the main characters experience fear, but they all handle it distinctively. Poe uses irony, symbolism, and imagery to show how fear affects the narrator’s mindset, along with their future.
What is courage? The dictionary defines it as, “the ability to do something that frightens one”. But the belief that someone is doing something to frighten another seems inaccurate. We’ve all grown up knowing courage as an intangible fire that only comes from within and it helps guide you when you’re feeling doubtful or scared. This type of true courage is displayed by Piggy from the novel, Lord of the Flies, Martin Luther King Jr. in his Letter from Birmingham Jail and Tim O'Brien in the short story, On the Rainy River. Whether it’s standing up for equal rights or laying down your life, courage is finding all your bravery and unleashing it on any challenge that steps in your way.
Fear exists all around us, there is no true freedom from it; it is a basic human emotion. At some point in a person’s life, they will experience fear. However, the ability to overcome this fear is what humanity recognizes as “freedom from fear.” Whether you are skeptical about jumping into a new relationship or the ones you care about are in great distress and need your help, fear will try to block you from achievement. Nevertheless, thinking will not overcome fear but action will; a statement that has remained consistently true throughout human history.
Whether one is in a scary situation, wanting to follow their heart, standing up for what they believe in, or having faith through a suffering time, they are all going to need some courage. People may think that some things take more courage than others or than some people are more courageous than other people depending what act of bravery they did. However, if one does something as simple as admitting that they they lied about something, that sometimes takes just as much courage as going to check out that “mysterious noise” downstairs in the middle of the night. All in all, courage is needed for all kinds of things, it just depends on the person, their fears, and their beliefs. “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” –Nelson
Fear is what you make of it because nothing is inherently scary it is what you take from the object or experience that makes it scary and fills your head with fear. This can have an effect on society and how people and their respective governments react to types of issues and problems. This leads to in extreme cases war and mass murder of a society that is being exploited as a scapegoat. In the book Lord of the Flies the author William Golding suggest the impact fear has on human nature and how it disrupts order and disorder in a society.
In conclusion, fear is moments that are considered to be dangerous from an emotional standpoint but is actually the key to feeling a sense of pride and courage when one overcomes these obstacles. What I had regarded as a useless function of emotions just meant to keep people from their potential, I discovered that it was the opposite; fear is meant to allow people to recognize their limits, and have them motivated to push past them, to reach your true potential in
