Post 651: Modern Fear

July 05, 20241 min read

The human brain has been trained over a very long period of time to notice things to fear. That animal could eat me. That plant could poison me. That large person could hurt me. We have had it ingrained to find dangers in order to survive.

The problem is now our potential dangers are not the same kind of dangerous. I might not look perfect in that picture. I might say something someone, somewhere finds insensitive. I might miss out.

My brain doesn’t know there is a huge difference between these “dangers” and the life-threatening fears of the past.  So, it gives them all equal weight.

I have found I can catch myself and shift my focus away from the doom spiral about the stain on my shirt. I can make it matter much less by taking my attention away from it.
