I thought I’d share something that I read in the literature of Alcoholics Anonymous years ago about having fears. It basically states that we are afraid we won’t get something we want or will lose something we already have. I like this because it gives a simple reason for why we can feel fearful from time to time.
One of the things that helps me with my fear is trying to believe that there is something (rather than nothing) that created life and the universe for a reason.
I try to believe as hard as I can that there is something more than just this world, but I also try to believe in myself. I find that when my belief in a creator and myself are strong, I’m less fearful and more joyful in life.
