The role of fear in confidence

HOW CAN YOU CREATE CONFIDENCE WHILE ALSO HAVING FEARS?

IN TODAY’S EPISODE OF MEET BRIDGET, WE DIVE INTO HUMAN EMOTIONS, FEARS, AND PHOBIAS. SOME FEARS ARE RATIONAL, BORN OUT OF SURVIVAL INSTINCTS, WHILE OTHERS STEM FROM THE MYSTERIOUS DEPTHS OF OUR PSYCHE. WE EMBARK ON A JOURNEY THAT DELVES INTO THE WEB OF FEARS, ANXIETIES, AND PHOBIAS, GUIDED BY PERSONAL EXPERIENCES THAT INVITE US TO QUESTION THE NATURE OF THESE INTENSE EMOTIONS.

THROUGH PERSONAL ANECDOTES, PSYCHOLOGICAL INSIGHTS, AND A SPRINKLE OF SCIENTIFIC UNDERSTANDING, WE AIM TO SHED LIGHT ON THE QUESTION THAT LINGERS IN THE AIR: IS MY FEAR A TRUE PHOBIA OR IS IT A MANIFESTATION OF SOMETHING ELSE?
