Why Is Fear Holding Us Back? (Guest Post)

By Stefan

Fear – it’s an unpleasant and rather strong emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain, or harm. It can keep us alive, but in most cases, it holds us back from leaving our comfort zone and enjoying life
completely. In this modern day and age, there are many different types of fear. Young people are afraid
of consequences and this is exactly why most of them are scared of exploring uncharted territories, like
the world of HIV dating for example. Sadly, there are thousands of reported cases of people giving up on
their potential companions simply because they’re HIV positive. This is just one example of how fear can
shape our lives today. If you want to know what the other great fears of our time are, and how they’re
holding us back, stick around and find out.

Fear Of Failure
This is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most frequent fears of our time. The majority of people
dream about the big success and the slightest possibility of failure absolutely petrifies them. This
particular fear creates certain limitations in a person’s mind and because of that, an individual is not
able to perform in the best possible way. Some people are so afraid that they can’t even make the first
step. Being afraid of failure paralyzes most of us and holds us back throughout our lives.

Fear Of Rejection
No one likes to be rejected, that is a fact! However, asking someone out is one of the most stressful
moments in modern-day relationships. People are terrified of rejection and this fear prevents them from
asking the question. This is rather ironic because if you don’t ask someone out, you can’t possibly know
what their answer is going to be. Therefore, individuals who are afraid of being rejected are constantly
floating in some sort of limbo of uncertainty and doubt which prevents them from being happy.

Fear Of Getting Ill Or Sick
These days, there are many people who have irrational fears of diseases and death. These folks are
called hypochondriacs and, unfortunately, they’re simply not able to live their lives to the fullest. As we
mentioned in the intro, some of these people are even afraid of dating others because they might get
infected with some sort of STD. This irrational phobia is one of the biggest reasons why HIV positive
dating scene is so neglected today.

Fear Of Being Alone
We have to admit that loneliness is quite scary. Millions of people all around the world are wasting their
time with wrong partners just because they’re terrified of being alone. Since they don’t want to be single
for a little while, they’re simply not able to find a potentially perfect companion for them.

Fear Of Being Judged By Others
Nowadays, everyone is absolutely obsessed with other people’s opinions. Young individuals just want to
be accepted which means they’re afraid to be themselves in public or around other people. They would
rather be fake than judged and this is exactly what prevents them from developing into unique
characters.

Signs He’s Falling In Love (Guest Post)

Is your man distant and emotionally unavailable? Well, join the club! Joking aside, the local dating scene is packed with indifferent and frigid guys who simply don’t know how to express emotions. You probably experienced something like this with your own partner in crime, but there’s no need to panic. You have to remain calm and keep your eyes peeled for signs of love that will put your mind at ease. Below you can see the subtle hints that say – I’m in love with you, woman!

He Introduces You To His Closest Friends

A man’s “entourage” is like the extension of his family. Every guy has those couple of buddies that are like brothers to him. If your guy decides to introduce you to his best friends, well, you can stop worrying because he’s madly in love with you. Trust us, this is one of the biggest indicators of pure love and trust. Also, if his friends happen to like you and vice versa, you can start looking for a wedding dress.

Good Or Bad News – He Calls You First

Every single man out there has that special person with whom they share both good and bad news. However, this person doesn’t always have to be their girlfriend. If your partner feels comfortable enough to share the good and bad news with you, before he tells anyone else, you can be sure he loves you. This type of behaviour is a sure sign that he cares about you and that he trusts you more than anyone else.

He Spends Most Of His Free Time With You

Relationships can sometimes be rather demanding. Therefore, most guys out there are spending their free time with their friends or they simply choose to enjoy some much-needed “alone” time. You can’t blame your boyfriend for having the need to isolate himself every once in a while, but if he chooses to spend his precious free time with you, he is completely and utterly in love with you.

He Includes You In His Plans For The Future

Most men are deathly afraid of talking about the future with their significant others. They know that if they start planning ahead, it means things are getting pretty serious. However, if your man is ready to talk about your future together, you can be sure he’s in for a long haul.

He Introduces You With His Family

Men are usually pretty close with their moms and dads, and they don’t bring a lot of girls home to meet the parents. If he decides to introduce you to his beloved family, you have nothing to worry about, he’s mad about you. This is, without a doubt, one of the biggest signs your man is in deeply in love with you. It means he is sure about your relationship and that he wants to keep you in his life for a long time.
