A not very timely note

This was a blog I once wrote during my high school and early college years. I keep it around for nostalgic purposes, but it is quite obviously no longer updated. I am looking to make a more professional blog presence in the future, but I still like to look at where I was mentally at certain points in time.

"Fear" by G.

Ah Fear. It's pretty annoying sometimes, dontcha think? Back in the days of cavemen, fear was a very useful thing. If a person was scared of something, they would stay away, and they would be safe. Obviously, today's world is a radically different place. Fear has become a powerful mental barrier for many people for many things. It's not a sabretooth tiger or some sharp vines we are scared of anymore, oh no. Our new and improved modern fears include fear of talking to others, of rejection, and of change to name a few. Indeed, fear is a weakness that we all share. And yeah, it is a formidable enemy. But... imagine, just imagine, if you had no fear? You could do pretty much anything. Want to talk with any random person you see? You got it boss. Want to get that job? Easy as pie. But seriously, when you have no fear, you no longer have limits on yourself. Now I know none of us will ever be completely fearless. Fear is a normal thing. However, if your fear is irrational and preventing you from living life to the fullest, then we have a problem. Fear can have a strangely powerful influence, as most of us know. So remember, you are not the puppet with fear manipulating your strings. If you are sick of being afraid, sick of wanting to do something but can't, sick of watching life pass by because you are afraid to take action, then listen. You are the master. Only you can master your fear. You can and you will. There is no real special method to "cure" fear, because fear isn't truly a disease. To master fear, you must face it. And yeah, it will be difficult, but the rewards are endless. As a person once said, if you are fearless, then the world and everything in it is yours.
