C2C, Monday, 10/31, moving through fear

The author says that many choices have been reactions to fear.  Something changes, they panic, have thoughts of disaster, and imagine failure, torment, and agony.  Then it is likely to act in a rash or fruitless manner, in order to put a bandage on the problem.  What the author most fears is being afraid, and says that fear can become a power greater than themself.  However, with a Higher Power greater than than their fears, fear does not have to dictate their choices or run their life.  With their Higher Power in reach, they can face their fears and move through them.


This is a great reminder that we are not alone, and whatever our Higher Power is, it can help us cope and get past the things that make us afraid.  I spent much of my life living in fear, and with my recovery in progress, I see that I can get help from HP, program people, etc., and "move through" whatever is scaring me.  Alanon has given me more confidence and better self-esteem, so I rarely become overtaken by fear.  And if I do, I always get past it.  When covid first hit our country, like many, I felt devastated and helpless.  My brother got colon cancer during that time.  I was a train wreck for awhile.  ODAT, HP, my toolbox, etc., got me back to a good place.  Grateful member.

Thank you Lyne and Debbie. I agree that Al-Anon has given me tools to have courage to move through fear. Sometimes I have taken rash, harmful actions due to fear -but my HP saved me from my mistakes. Knowing that " My Life is in Divine Order unfolding into goodness " , gives me the freedom/security to continue on the recovery path trusting HP will protect me. Have Happy Halloween!
