Being Afraid

I've read, and I believe, that we develop emotionally before we develop intellectually. We cry before we ever learn to speak. When painful things happened to us when we are children, we likely didn’t have a way of explaining the event, but we could certainly feel the emotion of fear that came with whatever messed up thing that was happening and, that was out of our control to stop. That feeling that came with that unexplained event, because we had no intellectual structure for it, might have stayed with us. It might have stayed in our body. It might have created a cycle that we will repeat until we learn to release that feeling and know that that fear has no real power over us
