Fear - an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or is a threat. So, it probably doesn't matter if the situation is real or imagined. And, your reaction is to fight or flight. The self preservation instinct kicks in and you have a big adrenaline rush. Sometimes, don't have time to be afraid - you just react.

Re: "imagined"- just because you are afraid, does not mean there is nothing to be afraid of.

- is reaction thoughtful or is someone just 'pushing your buttons'...

>> Are You Afraid?

Of what? I currently have nothing that is causing me to be afraid. But, maybe, I am just not aware of a present danger.

Hmm, good enough, something else to further explore there

Maybe had we newborn or teen on hand we could redirect. Until then, done here, time to move on.
