My Fears

I think now in 2017 we should be evolved enough to move past our fears. They were originally primal instincts to help us stay alive, part of our fight or flight response. In a world that's much more developed, what use is fear really? It contributes a significant amount of stress and worry to our every day lives. Part of me knows deep down that my fears are unjustified and uncalled for, but it doesn't stop me being scared. Every time I feel fear I try to be a little braver and see the logic in being afraid, but unless it's a harmful situation I really do think fear is redundant in our modern society.
