what is Fear?
Before knowing How to overcome Fear, you have to know what is fear? The fear is simply because you are not living with your life, you are living with your mind. Basically your fear is ” what will happen in future”. That means your fear does not exist and it is fully imaginary. When you always get afraid of particular things, And your fear reaches the upper level then it converts into a phobia.
Basically your desire, attachment, addiction are the reason for your fear. Because when you give some importance to something or someone, Then we also get afraid to lose it or to be Alone.
