How can one overcome fear ?

I think that at the base every fear of a "thing" or a person, is lack of knowledge and/or understanding. I don't mean fear of something like heights, or being mugged on the way to your car. Some fears are nature's way of urging caution in a potentially bad situation. 

I mean things like fear of spiders, or snakes or people who are different than you are. The only way to overcome those sorts of fears is to learn more about that culture or person or thing. As an example: I used to be frightened of spiders. I knew they weren't going to hunt me down in my sleep and bite me, but a part of me was still fearful that would happen. 

I moved to a part of the country that had Black Widow spiders - a spider most people are very afraid of. When I moved from an apartment to a house, I found a Black Widow living under my bed.Not only had she not come out to bite me in my sleep, but she was surrounded by the carcasses of small, rather deadly scorpions. She had killed them before they could hurt me!

This fall I had a Black Widow take up residence in a corner of one of my bathrooms. She was in a perfect place to study - out of the way, high up where nothing would accidentally come in contact with her. I began watching her and learned that she was actually rather timid. She ran away to the furthest corner of her very untidy web whenever I cautiously brought my hand close to that web. Yet she could move amazingly fast when an insect hit one of the strands. 

By observing her, I learned that most of what I had heard about her was not true, and I found I had lost my fear of spiders. I respect them, and will go out of my way to avoid causing them harm and giving them no alternative but to bite me to escape the situation I put them in. They are actually rather amazing creatures, and much more intelligent than I gave them credit for. 

By learning more about them, I was finally able to get rid of my life long fear of them and recognize them for the beneficial, and rather incredible little 8 legged creatures they are.

The four letters word 'fear' is a thing which can ruins anyone's life. It's very difficult for all of us to confront our fear and get rid of it. 

There are mostly two types of fear from my understanding- fear of some invisible factors like getting public shaming & fear of something objective like fear of spiders. There are some steps we can take if we really need to get out of our fears: 

  1. Identify and confront your fear. Figure it out what is pulling you down. And don't avoid it- face it, approve it if you want to get rid of it.
  2. Find what you needs to face your fear. Try to understand what can helps you to get rid of it no matter what it is. 
  3. Motivate yourself continuously that you can get through. There is nothing human can not confront. So why not your fear!
  4. Talk and take advice. Don't be shy or ashamed about your fear. Don't feel how people will react. It's your problem and you have to face it. Try to talk about it and get advice, you will surely find many life suggestions. 
  5. Take action in real life. Don't waste your time thinking that it will go automatically with times. Fear works reversely. So take action as soon as possible. 

We have to understand what harmful effects are causing by the fear. We often used to avoid it, keep it as a secret, don't tell anyone and try to forget it. But believe me, fear is something we never can forget or hide. 

The best way to get rid of it is face the truth and take action. I used to fear about public shaming in my teenage. But I motivate myself that I would accept what ever happens to me no matter how hard it is. I try to ignore those situations. And now I really don't care about it what other peoples are thinking or talking about me. 

So try to be positive, change your perspective if needed, control yourself, explore your abilities and take action. You will surely gonna fight your fear in a better way.

Fear  can be defined as a feeling induced by perceived danger or threat that occurs in  certain types of organisms, which causes a change in metabolic and organ  functions and ultimately a change in behavior, such as fleeing, hiding,  or freezing from perceived traumatic events. (Source -https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fear)

From the above definition, we can see that fee is a feeling anticipated by the victim. It comes when we feed our minds with the wrong information about a thing, people or place. Fear comes when we are anxious and consciously dwell on the negative perspectives of things.
