When you really fear something it can shade your perception on reality.

When you really fear something it can shade your perception on reality. Think about it. You fear something simple, say, water. This can keep you from swimming even if it's clear and there is nothing there. Or perhaps you fear abandonment, each slight, each careless word or whatever becomes a sure sign they are about to leave you, even if it's not true at all. It's hard to function. You may even know you aren't being rational. But it is hard to see past what your feelings are convinced of.

This is so true. It affects your life in so many ways and can steal your happiness. You are so focused on your fear that you are not living your life and making the most of it. As difficult as it is we have to try and work through them.
