"Fear is that little darkroom where negatives are developed."

Michael Pritchard

What a witty and meaningful quotation? The author has very nicely used darkroom and negatives in their original sense to convey a very powerful message. As negatives of photos developed in the darkroom to real pictures, when are possessed by fear, we develop negative tendencies.

If we look back and trace some of the negative tendencies that we have or had, it many times goes back to some or the other fear (real or perceived).

Fear of people results in negatives such shyness, inferiority complex, general disinterest in people.

Fear of failure results in lack of motivation, lack of enthusiasm, general apathy.

Fear of unknown results in anxiety.

Fear of death results in inability to enjoy the life.

Fear of life results in suicidal tendencies.

Fear of injury results in not trying many fun activities.

Fear of rejection results in not approaching people and new experiences.
