Fear- is a distressing emotion aroused by an impending danger, evil or pain. Whether the threat is real or imagined there can be a feeling or condition of being afraid. This is known a fear. We all are afraid of someone or something normally. But when this feeling becomes very intense it can be very towering and overpowering. It then becomes a chronic problem.

Fear can be of an instance like fear of heights or fear of a particular event. Our mind gets programmed in a way to feel alarmed. This is just a mental state that needs to be analyzed and resolved. With proper counseling, you can overcome your fears and be at ease with all the experiences.
