Phobias & Fear

There is a very important difference between phobias and fears and it is important to be aware of it.

A healthy fear is programmed in our system with the purpose of protecting us. For example, the last thing one would need is to be completely fearless of let’s say a dog or another potentially dangerous animal and ending up hurt as a consequence of this unhealthy “bravery”.

A phobia is that kind of “fear” that is inappropriate and causes discomfort and problems in one’s life, effecting personal enjoyment of life, career opportunities, contentment & fulfilment, relationships, personal empowerment etc. Here below we list the 10 most common phobias and the relevant percentage of people who are affected by them.
