The Evolutionary Purpose of Fear

A small tidbit from my upcoming book on Fear.
“Fear is the most essential emotion we have because it is the emotion of movement and evolvement if used correctly. Fear is an emotion which is present on a daily basis in some form. Fear preys upon the unknown. Life is designed to shift and change constantly and this is why fear is ever present in daily life. If we get stuck in focusing on our fears we will create more fear. Fear exists as a basic survival instinct designed to protect us from a perceived future danger. Fear is usually our darkest hour, but if we can find the evolutionary purpose and meaning in our darkest times we can use this as a means to find new reservoirs of strength and fortitude we never knew we had.” Sherrie Campbell, Ph.D.
