Fear is the brain's natural response to the unknown or to a perceived or imagined threat, it is there to keep us alert and ultimately safe. However, when a fear becomes irrational and stops you from doing the things you enjoy, it can develop into a phobia. Actual or imagined events, items or activities can trigger a phobia. They can cause the fight or flight response to start. The more times we experience a phobic response, the stronger it can become. Indeed, the stronger the phobic response gets, the more likely we are to experience it happening again and again.
