Many things have happened in the past few months with many of those events culminating around this time. At this moment, I am harboring both excitement and fear, but the excitement is a lot stronger than the fear itself. Some nights, I just can't put myself to sleep until early morning hours.... The point of the thread isn't too much about my excitement and fear, but more about excitement and fear itself.
You see, I started looking up excitement and fear and found that both are very "similar" emotions. Both pump up your adrenaline and both can trigger the flight-flight response much like how love and hate uses similar chemistry. The only difference between excitement and fear is how you perceive a situation. If you see a situation as deadly or anxiety stricken, it is most likely fear. If you see a situation as uncertain, but holding possibilities, it is most likely excitement.
It is like the difference between being chased by a lion versus riding in one of the craziest(but fun) roller-coaster in an amusement park. Both can be scary, a person would see the first situation as scary... REALLY scary, while the same person would see the second situation as scary... but fun.
Yeah, I think I'll perceive a situation more as exciting rather than scary.
