When I was writing the last post I assumed kinesiophobia was fear of physical movement or travelling but maybe it could also mean fear of changing our minds and looking at things from alternative perspectives.If you have not lived in different cultures even as simple a move as going from a working class home to a University may cause great anxiety. Changing your religious or political belief or even knowing that someone else has especially if it’s someone close to you is a major step.I know several people who still practise Catholicism but do not believe any of its creeds.But to formally give them up might be too big a step.Conversely,it would be even harder in some circles to move from atheism to religious belief in the sense that you might be mocked.This odd because there is no scientific reason against belief in God.
Ironically it was being made to study theology at school which was a watered down version of Aquinas that made me have doubts.I thought,so they are not sure.. and the head mistress was not tolerant of discussion.My attempts brought me into conflict and led me into mental pain eventually..
I suppose we need some movement in our ideas and our assumptions but not too much or we lose our footing.Sometimes we must hide it which is what I should have done when I was still at this convent school.
People who try to convert others like evangelical Christians or excessively left wing/right wing political groups should realise the dangers of asking people to make a giant leap of faith
