Not sure if this question makes sense but here goes.
I want to know what is the purpose of fear? I understand that true fear offers a fight or flight response. That makes sense to me but true fear emergency situations aren't usually an everyday occurrence.
What about all the other fears ie of heights, spiders, and the million other fears we have in relation to our loved ones especially our kids?
I'm asking as I've hardly slept all night stressing about my 17 yr old at a music festival for the weekend. Reality is my fear of something happening to her won't prevent something happening, or her going. So what's the point?

Fear is a survival instinct. We fear things/actions/objects that could hurt/injure/kill us.
Some of it is learned, some of it is inherent and some we can overcome.
