Fear can be paralyzing, and we tend to be fearful when we face a new, usually unknown or uncomfortable, potentially conflictive or painful situation, person, place or change in our lives.
There is real and imaginary fear as there is pain and suffering: real fear allows us to be attentive and prepared, protect ourselves and that/who we love; imaginary fear is the anticipation of something that may or may not happen, may or may not be real.
