Fear vs. Confidence:. Turn on the TV, log into social media, and you are bombarded with tales of violence, disaster and tragedy. Fear is a very powerful emotion, but not one to be held captive to. Every day there seems to be a new technique, book or meditation to teach you how to overcome fear. This is a wonderful thing. But in a moment of attack or surprise, fear is our bodies natural reaction to threat. It’s called the “Fight or Flight” response.
