African Proverb: If you fear something you give it power over you
Meaning: Whatever you fear, you indirectly give permission to control you. Fear is a negative force that has the capacity to cause or create action or reactions. It is nothing we should underestimate because of its destructive tendencies. There is a saying that the only thing we must fear is fear itself. Fear is as powerful as we allow it to be. In many cases, F.E.A.R is a False Expectation Appearing Real. Thus, the way to overcome it is with faith. Faith is being sure of what is hoped for or being convinced of what you don't see. Where or when fear is present ,faith is absent and the vice versa.
