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.

I Closed My Eyes (Guest Post)

I closed my eyes to forget you,

I closed my eyes but saw you.

I should’ve known before,

that you were using me to score,

in front of the people you adore.

 

When I got into trouble,

you gave your hand.

When I wanted to ramble,

you held my hand.

Then why?

Why did you throw a dart,

straight into my heart?

My Week In Review

Sunday:

Turns out I couldn’t find my passport and after freaking out a little I realised I had forgotten it in the Bank. So unfortunately the bank wasn’t open till Tuesday because of Labour Day on Monday so I was kind of screwed.

Monday:

I had went to the orientation for international students at Brock. This was the first time I saw the University and it was huge! And yes I got lost a lot! I made some cool friends who seem really interesting and awesome!

Tuesday:

Went to the bank and got my passport back!! Yayyyy! Had Taco Bell which I’m kind of obsessed with right now!

Wednesday:

Got prepared for my first day at university by buying a bunch of stationery and notebooks at the dollar store! It was way more interesting than it sounds…

Thursday:

Had my first set of classes (Philosophy, Sociology and Earth Science!). They were super interesting and my teachers seem super smart and super interesting! Finally got my ID and Bus Pass! Made a friend!

Friday:

Had Psychology at 1. It was soooooo amazing I can not wait for the class to really start teaching! I just love Psychology so much!! Made another friend and saw a cute cat too! Also found a cool thrift store with second hand books!

I also checked out the clubs offered at my university and am deciding what to join.

My Favourite Quotes Of All Time (Collab!)

So this post is actually a collaboration post with the amazing David who runs one of my favourite blogs! He also writes a lot of posts with inspirational quotes and we thought it would be super fun to share our favourite quotes with you guys!! Also if you enjoy inspirational posts or are into fitness check out his blog here! It’s definitely worth following!! And don’t forget to check out his version of this post here!

Ever since I can remember I’ve been a huge fan of Mark Twain and even though I never learnt much about him in school I did my own research and the more I read about him the more I admired him not just as a writer but as a human being. He was one of the most intelligent people I have ever read about and I could really relate to what he talked about. So here are two quotes that I have always deeply agreed with and understood.

I feel like a lot of what we learn in school is censored or has very little value in our lives in the future. If you’re really interested in something don’t rely on your school or teachers to teach you about it. Do your own research and learn about it yourself!

I couldn’t agree more with this quote. Just because the majority supported something doesn’t mean it is the right thing. Do what YOU believe is right and live your life as you want to.

CHECK OUT DAVID’S POST HERE. It is awesome (and I’m not just saying that because he said nie things about me… okay maybe a little!) 😂

Claustrophobia

The walls are closing in

Everything is blurry

I can’t breathe

Not enough air

Get me out of here

I can’t take it anymore…

Finally the elevator doors open

And I practically run out
