Don’t Let Fear Control You
Summary: Fear controls you, but it doesn't have to be that way. If you've fallen for lies and propaganda that has made you do irrational things, then lessen that fear to reclaim your individuality.
Are you filled with fear and anxiety, and find that it hinders you? Fear controls you and makes you do irrational things. It tricks your mind into thinking there is a threat that has to be avoided. It doesn’t matter if that threat is real or imagined, fear is a trait humans have from long ago when life was much different. These days the things that our ancestors feared from long ago are no longer a threat. But, that doesn’t stop people from using fear to manipulate and control you.
Fear can be easily implanted into the population, even with something that is invisible to the eye, and no evidence has proven its existence. That may seem crazy, and to the rational mind it is, but when bombarded with propaganda, you too will be influenced. That is, if you let yourself get to a suggestible state and let it enter your subconscious mind.
When you let fear control you, that means you are sacrificing a part of yourself and letting an outside source implant ideas into your mind that are not your own, as you then begin to parrot their exact words. You lose sight of yourself and all rational thinking is gone, leaving you to rely on the words of those who put the programming there to begin with. You’ll do anything to comply just to get life back to normal, but it never does since you have been brainwashed into believing something that wasn’t true to begin with.
It doesn’t have to be like this though. When you begin to have a sense of anxiety and fear within you from something you are watching, reading, or interacting with, then immediately stop it, take some time away from it, and approach it again with a rational mindset. It is easy to stop in the initial stages, but once you have been fully indoctrinated into the cult of fear-based propaganda, then the reversal will be much harder.
It is important to think outside the box, ask questions, and get information from all sorts of sources, not just one-sided ones, and the biggest source of all is internally and trusting your intuition. If something feels off to you, then it probably is. If you have a suspicion that something isn’t right or adding up, then something weird is going on. Don’t dismiss it since that means you have rejected yourself, but embrace this feeling and explore it to see where the truth lies. Realize the motives others have to instill fear within you, to control you, and instead be independent and strong. No one has control over you.
Let me know how this works for you. Have a great day!

Fear and anxiety go hand in hand, and I used to give into it. I let others control me due to the fear of so many things. I began to think irrationally as I would do things that were further away from my true self. Nevertheless, I started to find who I truly was and would hear, but not follow, the others who were trying to control me with fear. I heard their words and it sounded dark, irrational, and fearful. I choose instead to focus on what makes me happy and lessen that fear, while also being educated on what is going on in the world. The mindset I have is one of asking and thinking, instead of fearful and succumbing.
