You’re hiding under your bedsheets, scared that if even a finger shows, the monster will come to get you and drag you away to a place where it will devour you. Already you can feel the fear clawing at your throat and pounding away at your chest.
No. I’m not here to yell at you for watching too many scary movies before bed. I’m here to tell you something else.
You know what I’m going to say? You should be scared.
No. It’s not your just desserts (well, maybe it is), but think about it. What would happen if you didn’t have fear?
If you weren’t afraid of monsters, you wouldn’t know when to hide from them. If you weren’t afraid of people, you’d say whatever came into your head without regards for their opinions. If you weren’t afraid of the law, you’d laugh and go kill that person that annoyed you last week.
A lack of fear is what makes you a monster. It’s fear that makes you human, and therefore better than that monster that’s lurking at the end of your bed.
You have the moral high ground.
