Fear 恐れ

"Fear that makes us run from a mad dog is useful and necessary, whereas fear rooted in mistrust is unhelpful and needs to be overcome."
(From His Holiness the Dalai Lama's tweet on September 17, 2013)

The former is realistic fear and the latter is unrealistic fear. Anyway, we have to be careful not to keep constant fear because it damages our immune system. Antidote to fear is smile! (My commentary)
