I am not sure how to respond to the existing thread for this day in the program but I wanted to say that this whole concept of fear is resonating with me as nothing before ever has. I suffered emotional trauma and witnessed child abuse on one occasion and I know I developed a continuing sense of fear. I am insecure about many things which is fear. I hate confrontation which is fear. I have a hard time meeting new people in larger social settings because I don't know if I will fit on. All fear fear fear! How could I know any other way of being based on how I had to live in constant fear as a child? Thank you Alan for those postings. As I talk to my fear of physical pain every day I am learning it has less power over me.
