Unreasonable Fears
When a job still looked like a mere means of getting money rather
than an opportunity for service, when the acquisition of money for
financial independence looked more important than a right dependence
upon God, we were still the victims of unreasonable fears. And these
were fears which would make a serene and useful existence, at any
financial level, quite impossible.

- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Twelve) p. 121

Thought to Ponder
Situations I fear are rarely as bad as the fear itself.

AA-related 'Alconym'
F E A R  =   Fear Expressed Allows Relief.
