To fear or not to fear

What is fear, if not a place to hide from our most coveted desires? A place to seek shelter and peer circumspectly as dreams we so valiantly sought after escape us, with a deep gasp of relief. For those who do not fear.. succeed. What more menacing a thing than the responsibility of success.
It is in this regard that I almost convince myself that fear is my friend. But when he seeks shelter at my door, I am saddened to see him come. What curious lies we tell ourselves to ease the pain.
