Do you all agree that we fear things in proportion to our ignorence of them?

Many a times in life we face difficulties and most of them we get really scared of the situation when it is really bad and feel like everything happened because of the ignorence of something..isn't it? don't you think so?

its all good - smiley faced guy
i completely agree with what you have said and absolutely love your wording of it as well. They say 90% of what we worry about will never happen so how much time do we waste worrying about things we dont completely understand and a huge percentage will never come to be true probably because some of those threats dont even exist we just think they do because we dont actually understand them. Obviously there are some things we fear that are pretty self explanatory ie. i have 30 to last the next two weeks i will not be able to afford to feed my kids, well obviously this is a real and immenent fear but most of our fears are based on our ignorance of that which we are afraid of. cheers and good discussion to start +

Anyway's thanks for your response

"Hope for the best prepare for the worst" isn't it? this statement doesn't mean that you hav eto prepare for the worst...it simply means, you should wotk hard to succeed and then prepare for the worst....as, how much ever you work hard things maynot work in your favor...tat's all...but, optimist is main an done should be confident and more optimistic in life.. Thanks for responding

We get scared not because of our ignorance, it the thought of the outcome that makes us scared in life. Sometimes we are scared of difficulties in life just because the reasoning part is taken over by the imaginative part of the brain. Our imagination can run wild and scare us all.

Hm...in some way's you are perfectly right.I do agree with you ....but, if you look at my statement thoroghly you also might have to agree to some of my points here..... Sometimes, we feel a bad could have been avoided if we had done something diffreent or if we were extra cautious...isn't it? in these caess, we feel more scared because of our ignorence and which maybe true also...some worst things can be avoided if dealt properly..don't you think so....? anyway's, thanks for responding
