I looked up for the meaning of fear on Google and it gave me a wide variety of links to pick it up from.The first option was and so I copied it.It defines fear as ‘a feeling of agitation and anxiety caused by the presence or imminence of danger.’ A vague explanation I would say but a definition nonetheless.

If someone asked me what fear to me personally was I would say its just another emotion,not a strong one if one had to categorise it but an emotion in the well of feelings.The depth and the quality of one’s fears can be measured by the number of times one has been emotionally disturbed.

Fear was inculcated in an individual in order to derive discipline.The roots of fear have fairly been grounded within us ,deeply in our subconscience,gripping us unawares in it’s snake-like fangs.Fear is different for everyone.It can be the fear of losing someone you love;fear can be the loss of a friend in an accident;fear of getting caught when you are lying;fear of failing in an exam;fear of a Dementor’s kiss when starts to suck the happy thoughts out of you or just fear of the unknown.

There are fears that arise from attachment such as the fear and anxiety of not finding or being separated from someone or something we feel we need for our security or happiness.The fear comes to the surface from our own uncontrolled minds or delusions and in particular, the fears arise from the mind of self-grasping ignorance which is the root of all other delusions and thus the equivalent source of all fears.
