ON BEING A REAL PERSON

Human life is full of secret fears, thrust into the dark corners of personality. Fear of the dark, of cats, of closed places, of open places; fear of responsibility, of having children, of old age and death; guilty fears, often concerned with sins long passed; religious fears, associated with ideas of a vindictive God and an eternal hell; and sometimes a vague fearfulness, filling life with anxious apprehension-such wretchedness curses innumerable lives.
The disruptive effect of such secret, chronic fearfulness is physically based. The adrenal glands furnish us in every frightening situation with "a swig of our own internal fight-tonic." A little of it is stimulating; too much of it is poison. Habitual anxiety and dread constitute a continuous false alarm, turning the invaluable adrenal secretion from an emergency stimulant into a chronic poison.
To get our fear out into the open and frankly face it is of primary importance. As infants we started with fear of two things onlyfalling and a loud noise. All other fears have been accumulated since. To find out where and how we picked them up, to trace their development until we can objectively survey them as though they were another's and not our own, is half the battle. Often they can then be laughed off the scene.
The fact is that there is stimulus in hazardous occasions. Love of danger is one of the strongest motives in man. When life does not present men with enough hazard, they go out looking for it. They seek it in sports, in risky explorations, in missionary adventures, in championing unpopular causes. To stand up to a hazardous situation, to let it call out in us our love of battle, is a healthy, inspiriting experience.
One of the cures for unhealthy fears is action. Dr. Henry C. Link gives this homely illustration from a mother: "As a young wife I was troubled with many fears, one of which was the fear of insanity. After the birth of our first child, these fears still persisted. However, we soon had another child and ended up by having six. We never had much money and I had to do all my own work. Whenever I started to worry about myself, the baby would cry and I would
