Believe us, you don’t have anything to fear today.
Yes, another Friday the 13th is upon us today and with it comes a feeling of superstition among many, some of whom will spend the day behaving similar to a hermit so no mishaps occur.
But know this: The trepidation regarding this date purely is based on folklore and superstition rather than reason.
There is not one bit of concrete evidence that proves today offers more possibility for peril than any other day.
So, treat it like any other day. Tend to your business. Go to work. Run your errands. Do whatever suits you without worry. Triskaidekaphobia, or the fear of the number 13, truly is nothing to be afraid of.
Instead of being engulfed by triskaidekaphobia, focus on the Latin term “carpe diem’’ instead.
In other words, seize the day.
