Most of our fear involves fear of people. We are afraid of being rejected, or put to shame, or defeated. We are afraid of not measuring up or something.
I was getting a work permit from city hall and was somewhat worried. But later on I was met by respectful person who put myself at ease. Then somehow a thought came to me why am i afraid ? Remember the second commandment " Love your neighbor as yourself". Do you know you are also a neighbor to others ? that means they are to love you also as themselves. Do you get the point ?
God's commandment is for us to love others and for others to love others and that includes you and me.
But of course someone will say but someone did bad thing or things to me. Well that means they also violated God's command. If they do not repent of that they will someday answer to God.
Well does that mean we should trust all people ? Not exactly but love them as you love yourself and hopefully they will love you as they love themselves.
Next time you got afraid of someone, ask yourself why ? maybe they are also afraid of you.
But remember when you love others, even though they may not love you, you have the backing of Almighty God.
