Losing Fears, Erasing Bad Life Experiences

Share this article:



Scientific fact: We are born with only two fears. The fear of falling and the fear of loud noises.

How come in our adult life we have so many other fears?

We learned them, any other fear we may have, besides those two, we have acquire it during our life experience.

How could this impact our present lives? 
- As quick as you have learned a fear, you can also unlearn it.

Think about your experience, when did you acquire a fear you have?
-  Most of us can exactly remember a negative episode about something that made link fear to that particular situation and that fear remained forever in our lives. 
Ex: fear of public speaking, you’ve spoke one day to a group of people and thing didn’t went that well; fear of spiders, you've been touched by a spider in an unexpected way; fear of cutting objects, you've been cut accidentally as a child, and since then you can't even touch a knife.

(If you don't recognize immediately that negative episode, think about your past. Discuss it when someone who also lived it with you, and voila, I will guarantee that you'll remember that particular situation.)

Cause and Effect Logic 

Now think about this,if you lived an episode that traumatized and the outcome was a fear, maybe if you didn't had that bad experience, today you would be fearless! Could this be possible? Of course it's the cause and effect logic, no cause no effect period. 


Losing Fears, Erasing Bad Life Experiences

The solution:

Ok, but you can't turn back time and erase those past experiences. What you can do is to start to view fears as things you can gain along the way, but you can also lose!

Ad this to it, some of your fears you have were elaborated when you were a child, and maybe in your adult life those "childish rules" may have no meaning whatsoever. Ex: fear of heights, the places in child you thought as gigantic and that made you gain fear of heights, are actually today to your eyes kind of small, maybe that fear as no reason to be.. :) 

How do you erase a bad experience?
  • Creating a good experience with the same characters but different plot.
  • Down play that "bad experience" maybe it's just a child bad episode that today should have no meaning. 
How do you loose a fear? 
  • Confronting him! Confront your "enemy" like he was your "friend". You can use various methods that vary in aggressive modes, but the important thing is that you go straight to the point don't avoid it.
  • Again down play it, maybe it's not that big if you go deep on the origins of your fear.

Whatever case is, go for it, be introspective about it, you have the answers inside. All fears you have, are things you picked up on your way, you can leave all that behind and continue your ride in life with joy, it's on you to...
