Daily Prompt- Fearless Fantasies

Posted on

Daily Prompt –

How would your life be different if you were incapable of feeling fear? Would your life be better or worse than it is now? (Thanks, Nique Lektra, for inspiring this prompt!)

Fearless Fantasies

If I’m incapable of feeling fear, life would be very weird.  I may enter a house on fire to save someone, catch a live cobra, jump off a high story building, and play dangerous games.

I’ll not feel fear of death, loneliness, sickness, poverty, hunger, old age, powerlessness, committing crime, sin, everything which normal beings are afraid of.  Seems nice, no? No fear of darkness, cyclone, any disaster. 

Wouldn’t it be an abnormal life because fear is a mechanism brain is empowered for survival? 

Fear is that part of subconscious that makes you careful, reasonable and logical. It safeguards you from many disasters or committing crime or getting hurt. 

Is being incapable of feeling fear same as fearlessness?

In my opinion feeling fear, then trying to overcome it and be brave is better than being incapable of  feeling fear.

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. It would be strange and quite possibly life threatening to feel no fear at all. Exciting though.

  3. I think fear must be overcome … it is a part of life for prudence and apprehension, knowing that there is danger but facing the problem anyway is essential to survival!
