I've worked jobs where fear, in small amounts, will keep you alive.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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

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.

Hey Jive!

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.

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

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.

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.
