What are We Afraid of?

By DrMind | It’s never too late... | 10 Dec 2019


My reason for writing this article is thanks to my wife, who is obsessed with locking doors. It can be frustrating to someone like myself who is free and trusting. Yes, sometimes that has not worked out the best, however it allows me to live what you may say as a carefree life. 

It is always as if something is right behind her, watching her every move and waiting to do some kind of harm. Personally, I can’t live like this. I leave doors unlocked and even wide open sometimes. 

My mother is like my wife. Yikes!! They say you marry someone like your mother. In my case, this is true. I never meant to. It just happens that way.  They are both afraid of their own shadow it seems. 

Now what leads to a person being this paranoid? Media? Society? Their past? Probably a mixture of everything. It is hard to pinpoint an exact reason. 

The brain plays tricks on us. Our imagination can make us believe whatever we choose. Even things that are so wild and so unlikely can creep into the mind. Almost as if they are living inside their imagination and everything has the exact the same chance of happening. 

I am a math guy and love to give probabilities of things happening. Yes things are likely to happen. But at what percentages? I can’t worry about things that are a 1 in 1,000,000,000. If that was the case, I would worry about everything. And that is what people do. Worry and are afraid of everything! 

Live life and don’t worry about what might happen. Make what you want happen!
