How can I overcome my fears?
Over 30% of adults have a phobia of some kind. You are probably aware of some of the most common phobias: fear of heights, flying, spiders, rodents, snakes and other creepy-crawlies. Plus of course the most dreaded of all – public speaking.
You might also be aware that these phobias actually have an important biological function. In terms of human evolution, they are really quite rational. Snake venom is poisonous; heights are dangerous; public speaking exposes you to the risk of rejection by the tribe. If the fear of social rejection is a scary prospect at an office meeting or on Facebook these days, imagine how it felt in caveman times when the group was vital to keeping its members safe from predators!
If this behaviour is rational, why do I need to change it?
As globally acclaimed therapist Marisa Peer says, one of the key rules of the mind is that it is always looking out for what is in your best interest. Your mind or subconscious believes that it is not in your interest to have a spider dangling above your car rearview mirror, because its bite might be deadly. Your mind is operating in a way that is designed to protect you, not make life difficult.
However, there are times when this can really start to hold you back in life. Public speaking is necessary in many careers. Flying is also essential for many people these days. Other cases – especially less common ones, like fear of birds or dogs that may stem from traumatic childhood encounters – can interfere with your daily life and become debilitating.
