PG 1 Harjit Kaur Instructor Pete Howard English 101 26 August 2008 Childhood Fear Fear is an emotion that is caused by the brain, when we were faced with a terrible situation, or when we sense danger. Fear will result in the body tensing up; heart and blood pressure will increase. Not all humans have the exact same reaction to fear, but they do react in similar ways. People have fears over everything, starting from the smallest thing imaginable to the biggest thing on the plant. Fear cannot be controlled, but we cannot let it take control of our lives. Every one has something that they fear, even though they may grow up, but they still will carry their fears with them. I have always had the fear of being alone. When I was a kid, I begged my mom to let me stay at home, so I could prove to myself that I was a big girl. I was so excited, what ten year would not be excited to stay home alone for the first time?

It is sometimes embarrassing, having to tell people that I can a fear of being alone, but it is just who I am. People develop fears over the course of their life. The fears that they have as children do carry over through adulthood. The little fears are ones that they do not want to admit, but every one of us has some type. There is nothing wrong with fear; it is a necessary part of life.
