Without fear, we would not exist. Fear is one of the most fundamental and existential feelings. Fear is an important stressor that we humans need to get us moving, to prevent something unpleasant or to fight for something better. This fear used to refer to existential things, like being attacked by enemies or predators. The fear of starving or dying of thirst drove us to act more proactively. But in today's culture, in times of peace and abundance, our brains must learn to deal with fear differently, and that is often difficult. This is because our brains have been trained for thousands of years to recognize and respond to danger in a timely manner.
