Re: understanding fear

The argument that panic is about fear makes no sense. The reality is ignored. Everything in psychotherapy is seen as fear and treated as misinformed fear. But it isn't fear.

--Don Klein

I don't think anxiety is a learned behavior, nor do I think it has much to do with fear. I think it's basically a black hole, or a disruptive section in our processing for certain stimuli. It's basically a huge hole in the road when ever our brain tries to process social norms.

And I think the only cure is either to not travel that road, or take a shortcut and skip that section of the road.
