How to Overcome All Fears
Clearly put, most fear is created by your own mind, and in most cases is harmless. Understanding is the key to solving life’s problems (such as fear). One way to beat what you’re afraid of is by using this little thing that most of us are gifted with: logic. We use logic to solve our everyday problems, so why can’t it work for this? Use logical knowledge to outsmart your fear. Take the dark for example; many are afraid of the darkness, but we clearly understand that it is simply the daytime without light.
Try to find out why you’re afraid of what you’re afraid of. Your journey could lead you to discover that what you’re afraid of isn’t so frightening after all.
Most of it is just a psychological game; if you can dig deep within your mind, you will surely discover the root of your horrors. It can only scare you as much as you let it. Keep your mentality strong and you will surely overcome the dreadful situation you are in.
The best thing about conquering your fear is that it may eliminate other fears. For example, riding a roller coaster could ultimately erase your fears of roller coasters AND heights. Hit two birds with one stone. There are also questions that can mentally stabilize you such as, “What’s the worst that can happen?” or “Can it really harm me in any way?” More times than others, facing your fears head-on is the most resilient solution, and the quickest.
– Fear stops success
– Face your fears head-on
– Most fear is psychological, and unable to harm you
– Understand your fears before you act upon them
And don’t forget to smile!

Thanks for the article I will have my sister read it cause she is scared of our eight-legged friends. Hope this help her.
Interesting fact: On average, people fear spiders more than death. This done in a nationwide study, not just made-up. Sad, but true.
I always have nightmares of zombie-like rabbits. And its the one thing i fear the most.
I think it’s called Lepuriphobia or something.
Yeah, it is a fear of rabbits or bunnies in general. Zombie ones I don’t know so much about (that sound terrifying), but it’s just regular bunnies. Most common in the Western Hemisphere. It is interesting. Do you have fear of actual rabbits themselves in nature, or is it more towards the Easter Bunny kind?
No, I’m not afraid of the natural rabbits. They seem rather cute, but the images of the creatures i see in my nightmares makes them a bit scary (naturally).
Easter bunnies are kind of scary, especially the long teeth ones…
But, what i see in my nightmares are more like this ~~> http://i461.photobucket.com/albums/qq332/Jishikuchika/scary_rabbit_by_jenniferhl72.jpg
Oh my, that IS terrifying! I am real sorry for you. I’m glad to see you being part of this blog though. =)
Haha I know, it is terrifying.
And sometimes they have these giant carrots in my nightmares and they bang me on the head and etc.. It might seem funny as i narrate it. But it’s amazingly scary.
As for the blog, it helped me a lot, and I’m repaying it !
But yes, it’s an honor to be a part of the underground. : )
You should consider writing for the blog… =)
I have wrote some PS2 tutorial articles. But the thing is, I’m not that good at writing !.. lol
I’m learning. ^ ^
Ah, well even so, you are undoubtedly skilled with the PS2, as I hear from Versatile. Well I hope you get some confidence soon! =)
Yeah well, the “Roller Coaster” part is a good example. Helped me a lot…
Live life fear-free and under control! =D
Going to go skydiving soon to overcome my fear of heights, hopefully it will work!
Wow… That’s the most extreme thing to do, for a guy who is afraid of heights… Don’t you think ?
Well you are a brave one. To have a fear of heights and go do the scariest height-involved activity is truly daring. Well good luck to you and may you overcome your fears!
