You and Luc bring up a good point.
Personally I think the title speaks for itself
It’s an open and shut title.
Maybe another reason a subject/thread doesn’t go as expected is due to intent
If a person is blindsided, sure they react with fear a lot of times. Shock and fear.
However, when they are aware of tptb and that they are capable of blindsiding again but maybe not as bad this time, or maybe they decide to become
even more deceptive, at another angle, regardless, it shouldn’t rule one’s life and emotions to the extent of it being the center of their
universe and they orbiting around what they fear.
Fear is an emotion, imo, it’s a positive emotion that we should take into consideration in order to hopefully prevent harm against us or someone
For the majority, fear evolves into a need to understand then to possibly take precautions which leads to a better sense of confidence, which elimates
fear and replaces it with common sense and a forward and healthy movement in one’s life.
Fight or flight I think plays a role.
Personally, I hit the flight button and hard! A great example is snakes…..(shudder
If I see one in my yard, I soil my drawers and take flight higher than any professional basketball player could imagine in his wildest dreams!
All that happens in the blink of an eye. By the time I hit the ground, I’m mad! I’m mad at the snake although it’s his yard too!
So I instinctively want to kill him as I feel the heat of the shock and fear overcome my skin causing me to sweat. Typically, I’ll look for the
closest weapon but being such an astute and wise but soiled and sweaty girl, I come to my senses and freeze like Michelle O. when it’s bedtime!
Soon the snake, having his tri annually thrill, slithers away.
Knowing he exists and that he seems to like my yard, I don’t allow that to stop me from enjoying the yard, day or night. I don’t really think of
That’s because my fear was warrented at the time but since it doesn’t rule me, since the emotion evolves into the next normal phase, I can say
with pride, I don’t go around wearing soiled clothes. (sits up straight and proud).
I should add, if I knew of another being living in my yard, one that was once harmed but recovering or recovered totally…..
I have to say, it also has the right to occupy the yard. If by chance I think it may be harmed be it physically or emotionally however, I will feel
the need to keep an eye on it or the one possibly threatening, I said Possibly.
No need to intervene if it’s holding its own. Last resort though, if I absolutely had to. Yes, I’d intervene for the sake of it’s right to be
there and to exist, taking into account if it was there first or any other factors..
The reaction to intervene as a last case senerio would carry an element of fear, yes, but greater than that, it would be out of simple understanding
Do I care if I’m labeled for this, heck NO. (“heck” instead of hell for not wanting to lose even more points as I try even harder to deny
Emotions are natural and healthy and can save lives. Hopefully we can manage them, balance them in our day to day lives.
Fear creates all kinds of actions that might lead into constant daily reactions if not identified and managed.
One reaction could be name calling. When someone is used to being in control but then things happen and they find themselves going in circles instead
of what they are used to, well lack of understanding can create fear. If fear isn’t identified by the person who is uneasy, then another kind of
emotion/reaction might dominate.
For instance, labeling someone. If that label doesn’t work, then lets just try another one and another. Finally they start to ask questions. For
instance, they might ask why good intensions don’t get the same reaction it used to get.
Intent might be why.
Note: this is the opinion of this poster so take it for that please. If by chance I don't respond it's simply because this was just my opinion and
all I can do is allow it to speak for itself regardless if it looks like I'm a fear mongering, racist, evil, anti religion, lying typical christian,
emptyheaded ho! or just someone with a little bit of gas
