Fear versus Caution
Fear and caution seem very similar. You could say that fear is caution gone wild. Normally with caution, for example crossing the street, there's an adequate amount of caution where I'm completely satisfied that I am safe to cross the street now. Fear is like caution with no possible way of calibrating safety. For instance with social anxieties, there is often no criteria for establishing a sense of safety. It's a feeling of relentless cautiosness.
If you are afraid of something, be very clear with yourself what it is you are afraid of. I have often benefited by maintaining a list of things I'm afraid of. I consider all fear to be irrational and exhausting, as opposed to caution which is very rational. I consider any nervousness or anxiety to be a form of fear and something I would be better off without. It all goes on the list.
