An Important Quote on Fear

Posted in Miscellaneous, Safety, Self-Defense, Violence, Women's Self-Defense on November 12, 2013 by Combative Corner

Real Fear is a signal intended to be very brief, a mere servant of intuition.  But though few would argue that extended, unanswered fear is destructive, millions choose to stay there.  they may have forgotten or never learned that fear is not an emotion like sadness or happiness, either of which might last a long while.  it is not a state, like anxiety.  True fear is a survival signal that sounds only in the presence of danger, yet unwarranted fear has assumed a power over us that holds no other creature on earth.” (p. 277)
