Never underestimate the power of the human mind. It can separate us from those who love deeply, lead many to rack and ruin, and dismantle our best laid plans, all due to the fears that lurk within.
Indeed, fear is the enemy of countless legions, and causes destruction of will. Fear is our greatest fear, whether we realize it or not. But without fear, we can also behave boorishly, so some fear is integral to human life.
Why fear is both detrimental and important is strange to many, myself included, but to ignore it is to ignore an important part of the world at large. So it goes.
