You are still not understanding this topic correctly

Let's try this.

Assume that yesterday you woke up and there was a big lion standing in your bedroom.

Tell me some sentences about how you felt in this situation.

Clive

The lion scared me; I was scared by the lion yesterday. I am still scared now even it was happening yesterday.

I feared the lion; because it was standing in the front of me.

Am I correct?

Yes, very good.

Now try using 'afraid'.
