"I don't want to feel fear. Because when you start to get scared, that's when you start to die."
I've worked jobs where fear, in small amounts, will keep you alive.
Fear is inevitable. Defeat is not.
Unless you're a psychopath, fear is inevitable. :-)
No, you don't die from that. Fear is an emotion, but it often doesn't persist.
Pressure reveals character
I disagree. Feeling fear is not all good, but it does let you know your alive. The idea is to get past your fear.
You aren't really living unless you're at least a little bit scared. The best parts are really close to the edge.
Quite the opposite. When you start to feel fear, that's when you start to LIVE.
I think feeling fear is normal and a sign you are alive inside, but that saying becomes true when you then let that fear run your life.
Feeling fear doesn't do much. Exercising fear, however, will increase the chance of death, but I don't think think it starts a process.
Haven't seen you in awhile Jive! Glad to see you back.
I think fear is an important emotion to have.
Bollocks. Fear is a key element in keeping you alive.
And speaking personally, I need a few nerves to perform at my best.
Disagree. Fear is an evolutionary trait that keeps us alive.
it isn't fear that kills you. it is how you engage your fear that determines if it is going to help or hurt you.
backing away from the part of you that is meant to warn you of danger will get you killed far faster than experiencing the fear itself.
Nice to see you Jive! To me it's when you feel no fear at all that makes you dead.
Nice to see you as well! How've you been?
Pretty good! And yourself?
Been good, can't complain. Super hype for the World Cup though! Was it you that was moving to San Diego or am I confused?
Fear keeps us human, but in an excessive amount, it's crippling
Feelin pain is just a part of life..in my pants.
Fear..pain.. Tomato potato..
Though fear can good because it can lead to overcome that fear and become stronger, fear for the most part I feel is a bad thing.
Sometimes its when you start to live.
It's been awhile! How you been?
Nice to see you man! I've been good, def can't complain. Hbu?
Been great, got married and damn near finished with the basement
Haha awesome! That all sounds great, I'm happy for you.
I love that getting married ranks up with your basement Bob. The important things in life :)
"Life without some fear will be reckless and short. Life full of fear? It has already ended." Jestana,
Inspired by Jive
That's a brilliant quote haha. I'm happy to be associated with it
Thanks. Saving it for "My Book". Aren't we all writing one.
Rainey!?!?! Haha, how've you been? We need to catch up sometime fam, I miss you!
Seriously! I saw you on SOHOA last night and I was like damn, I miss chillin with him! I've been pretty good. Super busy but it's summer now! :D how have you been?
That's dope, glad to hear! I've been pretty good. I haven't smoked pot for some 6 weeks now because I'm looking for work haha. No complaints though. Happy anniversary btw! I'm pretty late, but I saw on IG you did something for it!
Good for you! I tried giving it up but I'm weak :\ and thank you! Yeah, we took a small 4 day cruise to Mexico
Awesome, how was it?
The trip it's self was awesome! Mexico sucked though! It was really scary. It wasn't a tourist town at all. 75% of the buildings were abounded and spray painted on, it smelled like it was just a huge sewer and there were tons of people begging money
Aw, I'm sorry. Well at least you enjoyed the trip as a whole though! I'm sure it was, at the very least, an interesting experience.
I don't think a little fear is bad, but if you let it take over your life, that's when you have a problem.
Fear can also motivate living. It's a great quite though.
I don't agree. Fear is part of a normal range of emotions. I'd rather be afraid of something than not feel the full extent of my emotions. Coming from a point of understanding how truly awful it is not to be able to truly feel.
It's only a problem
when the fear begins to control you anyways imo.
Yeah, agreed. It's all a matter of perspective anyway. Personally, fear cripples me rather than inspires me. If I manage to been level headed and confident during a stressful or intense situation, I tend to do much better.
It doesn't really motivate me, it's just kind of there. Something else to work on/through.
My favorite quote in this theme is about when you stop learning you start dying. A good outlook, to always keep learning.
I agree for the most part. I do believe that fear can sometimes be a catalyst for inner strength though...such as if a woman is being attacked, or a parent's child is in danger.
Good to see you post.
I've always been fascinated with how many people let fear influence their decisions, political beliefs, religious beliefs, etc.
Nice to see you fam! How you been?
Agreed. Myself included, I've always found the stupid things people baselessly fear. I fear shit that I know I shouldn't logically, but it happens anyway. Sometimes I want to be a robot haha
Actually I *am* afraid of robots. Truth. Haha
I'm okay, work's been a beast lately but I'm surviving.
I feel you. I'm envious a bit, been looking for work. Hang in there!
Ah well I shouldn't complain. Good luck.
Ya gotta let it out eventually. Better to have small spurts than some big, stress induced outburst. If you need an ear, I got you! And thanks!
I kind of agree if it's in regards to how to live life. But everyone's interpretation is half of what makes this quote poll interesting to me.
Whose quote is it?
I don't know the guy's name and I didn't exactly quote him, but it's from a liquor commercial (I think). The guy is the singer of Jane's Addiction.
LOL. It's a great line then. Jane's Addiction is a great band.
I've known they existed for the longest, but never heard a song of theirs! Got any favorites?
Irresistible Force or End To the Lies.
Lies are getting in my nerves right now. Thus, the titles. Another good one is Jaded Heart, Dokken. Older but great.
Awesome, I'll check them out sometime and get back to you. Thanks!
