Distinguishing anxiety from fear

Fear Is on Our Side

If you are experiencing anxiety you know it…
You feel very unsettled and shaken…
But don’t mistake this mood for fear even if it has some similarities with it…
Fear and anxiety are focused on different things…
A person’s who’s anxious is apprehensive and uneasy…
She feels uncomfortable and uncertain…
This description sounds like fear because when you are fearful…you are afraid of something…
And this something is threating you so you feel unsettled and shaken…
But fear and anxiety are actually different:
1- Fear is directed at and discloses specific objects in the world—Anxiety isn’t about anything in the world at all…
2- Fear can be resolved by attending to the objects that it points to—Anxiety can’t be resolved in any worldly way at all…
I will be explaining more the difference between anxiety and fear in my upcoming posts to make sure you know the difference…
