“All of which is to say, it wasn’t a ghost that I saw. All I saw was myself. I’ve never been able to forget the fear that I felt that night. And I always think that there is anything more terrifying to a man than himself.”
Haruki Murakami, The Mirror
Sometimes we feel extremely worried or frightened about something and at the same time we deceive ourselves about this condition. We behave passively as if our fear will be harmless. In practice, however, it has a detrimental effect to the quality of our life. Iterative fear is pulling a human down consistently. But there are always ways to disentangle our self from far-reaching negative consequences. Life is continuous formation through choices. Even within one second we have many alternatives to choose. If we afraid of something, we should take into account at least two choices. One option is connected with becoming indifferent to the difficulties in our lives. The other option creates such a mechanism that our fears will stimulate us appropriately. Let my intuition tell me that at the moment I choose the second option.
