Uncertainty scares its obscurity. Psychologists say that there are only two fears in human nature - the fear of pain and the fear of the unknown. We are not afraid to go to the vaccination room for the first time, because we don’t know the pain and don’t realize what will happen. But over time, we develop a clear reflex, and the very word "vaccination" or "dentist" causes the corresponding reactions. Our fears come with us from early childhood. Going to the first grade is not at all scary (although as anyone), but, for example, it is very scary to move from one school to another or go to college. Fear: “If I am the most stupid, unprofitable. And if I am the worst writing exam and will not do? I will not respect myself for weakness and laziness, which prevented me from knowing anything. ” Fear: “I’m afraid not to justify the confidence of my parents, not to justify their money and energy invested in me. After all, they believe in me, and may be disappointed. And together with them I will be disappointed in myself. ” Fear: “I’m afraid of meeting a new team.What is he like? And if I do not accept? And if I don't have friends there? They may offend me and not understand me. ” Millions of fears, but only two roots — obscurity and pain. That is why a person is madly afraid of death - here both of these fears coincide, reinforcing one another. Uncertainty sometimes scares even more than pain. But learning to accept her wisely is a great talent. This is for us it is the unknown, and for someone invisible who brought us to the threshold of this very uncertainty, this is a long-thought out point of the plan. And so often we do not trust this SOMETHING. And this SOMEBODE very much wants us to enter into this uncertainty and pass it so that the unknown becomes for us fame. We do not see the whole picture of life unfolding around us. Indeed, as a result, we gain experience - the most valuable outcome of all actions. A person tends to get used to certain conditions of life, he is afraid of change, many are proud that they have been working in one place for 25 years, and more often than not it’s just the unwillingness to change anything, the fear of change, the fear of uncertainty. It is interesting how, by mastering the unknown, you can get experience; it’s like a person who cannot swim with horror looking into the sea distance, and having learned to swim, he dives with pleasure,getting pleasure from “skill” and not fear from “inability”, as a person starting to learn an unknown language gets pleasure when he speaks that language and he is understood how a child laughs when he pedals a bicycle that just recently caused horror and now joy. Uncertainty must be treated philosophically, wisely, positively. If you are on the threshold - enter. Do not look back. The past by you, therefore, has already been mastered (at least to some extent), and the time has come to learn something new, unknown, unknown. And it will not always be the way you want. Experience is incomplete if everything goes like clockwork. You will know only one side of the medal, but what about the ability to get out of difficult moments, decide what is not solved, deal with depression, overcome temptations, preserve ideals at all costs, when everyone is actively crushing and breaking them, believing in truth and truth, not to surrender their principles, not to succumb to despondency and stand up when everyone strives to knock you down from positions that have established themselves earlier. This is also our experience. “It is ridiculous to be afraid of what cannot be avoided. "

Because they fear that it is painful to die, and because they do not know what will happen next.
