The Comfort of Fear | READ
The Comfort of Fear
Panic, anxiety, shortness of breath,
rapid heartbeat and head rushing fullness
of what can go wrong.
Full engagement of your creative imagination
tuning the channel to the horror movie,
the worst-case scenario, embellishing the scenes
with the words, pictures and
feelings of despair and terror.
Living in your head, sending fear-based
chemicals into your body,
living constantly in fight or flight and your head
constantly feeling like it’s going to explore.
Yet, you feel alive.
You feel a rush of strong emotion that greets you
like a familiar old friend.
Why would you want to say goodbye to
that indulgent friend who has always allowed you
to stay safe, enabled you to not take any risks
and kept you securely inside your comfort zone?
Why would you indeed?
