Phun-size Philosophy # 65 – Danger

Danger is usually perceived as the condition of being susceptible to injury. It is normally viewed as being the cause of pain or loss and is almost always associated with negativity because if danger is anywhere in your life it isn’t in a very stable environment. Danger shakes things up by making things vulnerable to harm and nobody likes to be hurt or have to endure more stress or pain that is required from living and breathing here on Earth. If there is danger around, that means that something is at risk of going wrong. The greater the danger that is present, the greater magnitude of injury or pain. It also comes with an increased potential for some aspect of a plan or life to turn out terribly wrong. Danger has been known to completely ruin a life so people would naturally choose not to associate, interact or be in the presence of it. Danger places a noticeable threat on things that you hold closely to your heart and stuff that you hold deep emotional attachments to. If the threat is big enough, there’s a chance that whatever is placed in the direct path of the danger won’t exist after they collide. This can apply both physically and figuratively like if you are in physical danger you are at risk of dying or your plan has a chance of failing because of danger. When faced with potential danger, you need to weigh the risks and benefits of each situation. If you are being reckless you leave yourself more vulnerable to danger. You should only commit a possible dangerous action if the foreseeable outcome provides more benefits than detriments. There is no guarantee if safety in dangerous times and if you are put in harms way there is a good possibility that there will be an unfavorable result will occur to your well being. The best that you can do is to prepare for it as much as you possibly can. There are some interesting responses that our body has developed instinctually to deal with times of danger. If we feel threatened we exhibit a fight or flight experience but ultimately awareness is your best defense. Danger’s greatest enemy is awareness. Check out more at!
