Beliefs are inherently subjective. Individually and collectively, we may hold a belief for which we have a particular sense of certitude and conviction. Now, this does not mean that just because one is certain that one’s belief is true, that it is not infallible. Believing in something does not necessarily make it true.
At times, genuine threats give rise to fear, yet fear can also develop from imagined threats. Luckily, all fears are learned; no one is born with them. Consequently, we can unlearn our fears by regularly practicing self-control over them until they disappear.
