Fear (an intellectual AIM convo)


Swain: im surprise we have the same major. alot ppl dont major in anthro. but it helps u have a grounded outlook on life

Me: yea i love it

Me: u look @ the things ppl take foregranted

Swain: yeh. and realize that ppl dont want to succeed

Me: thats how u really know about who a person is. when u know what they take foregranted. cuz thats what they see as normal

Swain: real talk

Me: what u mean by ppl dont want to succeed?

Swain: ppl often say there always busy. they move around alot but dont progress. They dont want to achieve greatness. they are comfortable being a crab in the barrel

Me: thats somewhat true. but i think its mostly cuz ppl r afraid becuz to be successful u need to put urself out there. which is a big risk, and some ppl let doubt and fear of failure paralyze them

swain: that is very true as well
what are ur fears?

Me: i only have one fear and thats failure. but i suppress it and still move forward with what i want to do cuz an even bigger fear i have is to live a life of regret, a life of what ifs….

Me: so i guess i have 2 fears, lol

swain: i c

Me: what about u?

swain: I dont fear much,because i know that fear is what i create its not outside of me. and i used to regret things but then i saw that. if im in a better situation and mind state today then everything of yesterday happened for a reason even the bad.

swain: i get impatient sometimes tho

Me: thats cool but u still must have a fear

Swain: y must there be fear

Me: because its human nature. fear is an instinct for survival. its to protect you and switch on certain physiological responses (like the flight or flight) so that you can avoid dangers

Swain: yes. that is in a situation where fear is triggered in response to a threat. If there is no threat then there shouldnt be fear.Its a difference to live with fear, and to have fear in a situation
