it has been found over time that a small amount of fear is the cause of alertness and attentiveness in responding to emergencies.
there are many kinds of fear--fear of failure.
fear of unknown.
fear of failure is what happens when one is gridding formula one cars on the hot track -as you run to show each driver where to place his front wheels for the rolling start and you think you may fall and be run over by a racing
car. your own fault--never happened--but each time gridding those extremely fast and sleek cars i did have a slight fear of falling off my alleged game
and being on track with wheel
marks on my back.
while working in emergency
and intensive care, in a code blue situation, one will have a slight feeling of omg, if i screw up this guy dies forever----but that didnt happen.... the guy either lived or died on his own--not from any foul up on our part.....
.working in arrhythmia center when we stopped hearts at bedside and restarted them deliberately to test the medicine being tested----yes we were investigational unit-- we would , me and the other rn, look each other in eyes and wink--we both felt this if we screw up thing---we did well each time without fail=--we always feared failure there as our fail was the patients life, as well as his hope, as we were his last chance at living any kind of life....
yes a little fear is good--a positive thing. when it gets out of hand--like most of us with spiders---then it is not positive. without the fear of whatever, we get careless and do not perform in our best mode. so , a little fear is a good thing.
phobias do not have positivity. is extreme uncontrollable fear of whatever without reason.
when i was 3 yeas old, i was a near strike by a ball of lightning
in denver colorado, as it danced its ball lightning
dance within one foot of my face and body---scared the living %%%% out of me and i had a very looong time coming to reality between what was dreams of a 3 year old child scared out of wits and what was reality--i finally figured it out when i was in my mid 30s---and i sailed thru lightning storms holding a steel wheel
and wearing crocs with my cat on board and my hair curling more each lightning bolt nearby in 2009-2010....gulf of mexico
is a good place to sail away the fear of lightning--i am not completely over it--but i want to take a picture of a lightning bolt to further my freedom from this fear. i used to jump out of my skin each time i saw lightning anywhere in the sky......now i dont --i can think like a human and not react like a critter fleeing it.
fear of unknown can keep souls from sailing out of a comfortable environment
--their own dock
and marina --- and for what reason---some take this fear as a challenge, while others take it as a sign to quit.
not everyone reacts same in situations--we make our own fears inside our brains. it is the ways in which we deal with our fears that defines us.
i respect storms, especially those with names on them....
normal frontal systems are fun to sail=--prefrontal winds move my boat. most other gentle breezes my boat thumbs her nose at.......storms are wind
and rain and swells and lightning....conquer each one and you be fine. conquer them together in one place and you rule
---for the moment....
i have been getting my perspective so that my greatest fear is hurting my momma---she doesnt want anything to happen to my cat--lol---so i got spot so she can save bubba when and if necessary---i bought a ssb
so she can hear from me when i do longer passages--i just need to install it, and get licensed!.... mortification of momma has been my pastime thru my life so far---lol she didnt like me playing in the literal freeway of race
car track working--dangthatwasfun--but she tolerated it===i think that helped her from being afraid i will die at sea --she just doesnt want to out live her kids
, even tho she probably will outlive one or two of us.
