Insight: Fear is something we all have had. There are two kinds of fear. There is a good kind of fear that keeps you from talking to strangers and a bad kind of fear that keeps you from falling asleep (if you are scared of nightmares). To deal with the bad kind of fear, try spending more time with people who make you feel safe, like your mom or dad. You could also study about what you are afraid of and see if there is a real reason to be afraid. For example, if you were afraid of lightning, you could study lightning and see how many times it strikes and how often is has hit a person. Also find out how to keep yourself safe when there is a lightning storm.
Another thing you can do is pray, God can calm us down and take our fear away. God says in the Bible that he will protect us. I know when I am afraid, and I ask God to help me, He does.
I strive to help others by being a safe place for others to ask questions and pose issues they face.
