Fear can be crippling, but it can also be helpful. Fear certainly got us through some tough evolutionary times. “no, don’t pet the big kitty, be afraid of it eating you.” Or something like that.
Nowadays though, we’re afraid of everything. Failure. Looking bad. Getting made fun of. Making mistakes. Pretty sure our ancestors didn’t intend for us to live in a fearful state of what people might think about us. I don’t think natural selection was ‘choosing’ a fearful state to be status quo for future homo sapiens.
In this flashback I talk about good and bad fears, and what we can and can’t do about them. Be friends with our allies, but get rid of the monkeys on our backs.
