The Fallout of Fear
Whether it's the monster iunder your bed when you were six, or facing your parents when you go against their demands and defy them, fear will always play a signifigant part in life.
Sometimes, petty fears get in our way. The fear of heights, the fear of the dark, or any other fear can prevent us from doing what we truly want to do. It could keep you from riding that roller coaster with your friends, it can keep you from going to the haunted house. But, either way fear can hold you back. IF you let it.
Some people can go their whole life without riding a water slide, without seeing a horror flick. For some people, fear runs their life. They have no power over their own life because of their 'paralyzing' fear. To those on the outside, this fear could seem ridiculous. But to those experiencing it, this fear could be crippling.
I have a personal experience for this topic. Once, a couple of weeks ago, my family was at the mall. We had taken my parents, my 15 year old sister, my 17 year old brother, my 11 year old brother, my 4 year old sister, and my 1 year old little brother. We had reached the escalator,we being older brother, my younger brother, and both of my sisters, and the boys had already gone done, leaving my older sister and I to deal with my little sisters fear of the escalator.
"It's scary!" She had cried, glancing at the machine.
"Cayla, I'll hold your hand." I told her gently.
"No! I am scared!" She ran into the store behind us.
The point is that regardless of unintimidating a thing may be, do not underestimate fears. But, sometimes a fear may help us progress in life. A fear could help us reach heights we had thought impossible. But, only if you're ready to take a risk and jump.
