Comments on: Fear conversation and contention, for your attention Wed, 30 Apr 2008 18:34:20 +0000 hourly 1 By: christina Wed, 30 Apr 2008 18:34:20 +0000 People in various positions in our lives can turn a profit using our fear against us. And not just a monetary profit, they use us[our response to fear] for their own ends. Reading the recountings of a former soldier, he described how having fear always gave him that extra edge .

40% of the worries never materialized.

30% of the worries were about the past, were absolutely nothing could be done about them.

12% of the worries were about other peoples buisiness.

10% of the worries were spent on real or imaginary illness.

ONLY 8% of the worries were justified.

There can be healthy fears, or more so anxiety that can motivate people.

It is only when these fears are repetetive and control the person that they become unproductive.
