 Fear is one of the most basic emotions and is not, in itself, dangerous; it is part of a natural alarm system designed to react to or anticipate danger. And though that system was first employed to avoid natural predators—a lion on the prowl, say—it has been adapted over time to deal with abstract threats or even social situations.

Changes is our blood circulation to make more blood available in case of fight or flight and we can feel this change in our bodies when blood is being circulated to our muscles and arms and legs.

Fear can also make it very difficult for adults and children to concentrate. Anxious thoughts make it difficult to do homework or do daily chores.

Anticipatory fear has two routes one is worry and one is anxiety. It is healthy to anticipate fear so you can problem solve. Persistent fear can look like a panic disorder being afraid of fear itself. Social anxiety is a fear or being scrutinized by others. There is also a generalized anxiety and other anxiety disorders. Over 30 percent of people have experienced anxiety or an anxiety disorder if not more. Over 6 Million people have generalized anxiety disorder and feel daily fear.

Past events and traumatic experience scar the brain and can trigger anxiety today if it is not dealt with through counseling or a mental health professional.
