Secret fears

Best Blogger Tips
Fear is a natural human reaction to any situation or event we perceive to be threatening or harmful. Membership on the human race is frightening because it has certain non- negotiable givens. Whether we admit it or not, pain, sickness, aging, and death are inevitable realities most of us fear. That we have no control over these events only compound our fear.

The first step in conquering fear is admitting it. Several readers were brave enough to take this crucial first move. Pain is not a bad as we think it is. Pain is body's way of telling us that something is wrong with it. A world without pain would be a world without any living human inhabitants- all would have died because their bodies never gave any early sign of being afflicted with a potentially fatal illness. Of course, we must do our best to take care of our health so we don't succumb to diseases and the physical and mental pain that go with t hem.

We all fear aging not only because of the physical changes it brings (wrinkles, disease) but also because it is the ultimate reminder of our mortality. The trick to coping with aging is not to think of these changes as problems- just be aware of them.
  • to stay well, take a more active role in life than you did in the past
  • focus more on self-care than you have before
  • stay connected to other people; this will helps u feel useful
  • eat healthy diet
  • think positive
Refusing to accept our finite life span is always a losing proposition. Death is not an evil--its is essential condition of life. Death is psychologically as important as birth. Shrinking away from it is something unhealthy and abnormal which robs the second half of life of its purpose.

We need to find meaning in our lives.

Very nice post indeed. I am 62 yrs old. A lot of times accepting our fate as human beings is a big mind game that we need to play.Help others. Socialize do not crawl up in a corner and die.
I do volunteer work. I work on my blogs.I live for the grand children. And I feel I have lived a good life. I will be passing away to another space and time when it is time to go. I have accepted that.
Have a good day.
