Brain Facts

Threats are just neural pathways

The things that felt bad to you in the past built a pathway in your brain that turns on cortisol when you see something you associate with that bad feeling.

The pathways you built before the age of eight and during puberty become the superhighways of your brain, so whatever felt bad during those years wired the alarm system of your brain.

We all end up with more alarm than we really need because we feel threatened by tiny cues that were relevant long ago.

Many of those cues have value: they protect you from falling off cliffs or buying bridges from attractive strangers. But they make a flawed guide to life.
