    Truthseeker. I don't know if your beliefs are right or not, though I have my opinions. But I suspect they have done wonders for your life, and it's nice to see that.

    Mine work for me as well. I could get in to a whole other debate on that subject alone, but instead, let's just agree how nice it is to be happy with yourself and your place.

    I'd prefer to berate the weak, but if you insist.

    I think that courage, instead of being an absence of fear, is blind fear. If you are courageous, then you are just as scared, but you want to know what makes you scared. Just to be cliche.

    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. ~~~~ Bene Gesserit rite

    Well, the opposite of fear is love, but rather, a self-love to begin with....
    And self-love implies confidence, which was described by our fellow Guillermo there...

    M.. Second Taught.

    First What is Fear.

    Fear is after alittle : Fear The Fealing (The Brain and physical sensation) AND Fear The Phobia (A tought A reflection often consequence of a feeling, a lie to itself) .

    Fear the feeling and fear the Tought.

    So I would say contrary of fear the Feeling would be ''Confidence'' You cannot fear and be confidentat the same time when you pass in front of a dog for exemple .
    Confidence is a Constructive feeling and his contrary is fear a destructive feeling in front of a situation.

    And For The Fear :The phobia , Truth is his opposite since its a lie to itself wich take us far from truth and make us live in a total lie and obscutity ,in abelief of A BIG FUCKING ASSHOLE LIE.

    I think I t makes a lot of sense of releasing sense. My father say that fear is like a horse we all have inside and we have to train him and control him so we can use him in our self, if not the horse take control of yourself and start running all around.

    So it isn't stupid to misspell 'stupidest' when you're calling others out on it ?
