Oh, yes; I was talking about fear. That’s what this conversation is about: FEAR.
The point about fear is this: Your brain came with a default setting for fear. It’s automatic. Fear forces you to act when you are threatened. You don’t have to think about it.
But, then, there’s another kind of fear. You CREATE this, other, fear by thinking about it. It might be a fear that you’re not smart enough, or beautiful enough; or that no one will love you; that you’ll never be successful.
That’s a fear of another color. That fear is in your brain because your thoughts put it there, and the more you think about it, the more your brain will reinforce your thoughts. It’s like a vicious circle that is powered by your thoughts.
In chapter 4 of Why Do I Feel This Way? fear is laid out so you can see it for what it is. The whole conversation is right there, in the book, along with a choice you can make.
