NeoPhobia

The fear of newness

Could also be called the fear of change

Why change what you are used to?

Why make the switch from old to new?

Or is neophobia the fear of not understanding? the fear the unknown?

What if what you don't know of turns out to be something wonderful and exciting?

I guess one will never know until they take the plunge.

Fear should come from disliking something you understnd, not from disliking the fact that you don't understand.

Phobia means fear, but are we fearing what we don't know or the fact that we don't know about a thing?

So should we fear fear or fear ignorance?
