I heard in a song.... fears are lies? is that true cus i sure am afraid of a lot things
Obviously not, because if you fear something then you are scared, and the fear is real.What your talking about though, are irrational fears like being afraid of the dark. Or being afraid of black cats because you've been told they give bad luck.Truth is, there is no difference between a pitch black room and a well light room. And a black cat doesn't give you bad luck, it's just a color.Also, rational fears are, for example, being afraid of snakes/lions/etc because it's a known fact that those animals can attack you at any time.
I would say "fear are lies" that affects an individual. However, this depends on the topic because, it is considered to be a worrying negative sensation which is triggered by a perceived threat.
