for the acronym of F.E.A.R.
... Fuck Everything And Run
... Face Everything And Recover
that I am sober and made it through another weekend of isolating
that they don't throw me out of AA meetings for being a sicko
that I am anal-retentive (obsessive-compulsive) enough to continue this list even when I don't feel like it
that when I isolate, my townhouse gets cleaner
that I am able to at least spend a few hours each day when it's NOT all about me
that I chaired the 6:30am meeting today and threw out to the group my FEAR of people, rejection and abandonment
that I have a sponsor who will listen compassionately if and when I have the Courage to call him
The thing you fear most has no power.
Your fear of it is what has the power.
Facing the truth really will set you free.
