When we experience fear our instinctual response is: fight, flight, or freeze. As military wives of soldiers who deploy to war zones we often experience fear for their safety, but most of us don’t know how to allow fear in a way that doesn’t consume or cripple us.
In this episode I talk about the differences between worry and fear and show you how worry typically does not serve you, while fear can be productive and healthy to fear. I give the example of worrying about my school aged children being harmed in a school shooting vs feeling fear that I’m a mother of school aged children and we live in a world where school shootings occur.
