The Love of Fear | The Safety Net

The Love of Fear | The Safety Net

When we get scared, our bodies go into fight, flight, or freeze mode. So if we are in a setting where we get a “safe” fright (like watching a horror film), our brains will quickly evaluate the situation and tell us that we’re free from risk.

Many of us are actually seeking "controlled" fear and suspense, because we know we are safe.

The Love of Fear | The Flood

The Love of Fear | The Flood

  • When we get scared, we get a rush of adrenaline and a release of endorphins and dopamine.
  • The biochemical rush can result in a pleasure-filled, opioid-like sense of euphoria.
  • When we are reminded of our safety, the fear subsides, and we’re left with a sense of relief and well-being.

The Love of Fear | Self-Satisfaction

The Love of Fear | Self-Satisfaction

Some people enjoy "pushing the envelope," seeking thrills, and seeing how much fear can be tolerated. If they are able to endure the barrage of anxiety, suspense, and fear, a great sense of self-satisfaction is often experienced.

The Love of Fear | Closeness

The Love of Fear | Closeness

The Love of Fear | Curiosity

The Love of Fear | Curiosity

The fear of the unknown is one of the most natural and instinctive fears that we have.

Our world is easier to engage with when things make sense to us; and so, some may choose to engage further with 'the unknown' in order to better make sense of the situation.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
