What is fear? Technically fear is a very tiny almond shape part that controls emotion. A baby has no sense of fear or anxiety. Fear is what we accumulate through our various experiences as we grow up. Our brain is designed to recognize threat and panic that look on our face. It responds vigorously when encountering fear in order to protect us from a near collapse situation by releasing stress hormones and combats anxiety or panic attack, biologically.
