Fear is one of the basic, negative but necessary feelings all of us experience from time to time. We feel it for a reason, usually to protect us. There is of course a difference between harmless fears which have no or little impact on our day to day lives and strong fears or phobias.

A spiders hair literally stands on end when confronted by a human, sometimes they even roll into a ball and pretend to be dead out of sheer terror. They really don't want to have anything to do with us. They just want to get on with their lives.
