Self-centered Fear
The chief activator of our defects has been self-centered fear—primarily
fear that we would lose something we already possessed or would fail to
get something we demanded. Living upon a basis of unsatisfied demands,
we were in a state of continual disturbance and frustration. Therefore, no
peace was to be had unless we could find a means of reducing these demands.
The difference between a demand and a simple request is plain to anyone.

- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Seven) p. 76

Thought to Ponder . . .
A fear faced is a fear erased.

AA-related 'Alconym'
F E A R  =   False Evidence Appearing Real.

Thank you for sharing so generously of your experience, strength and hope in carrying the AA message.
Grateful to serve,
peyton
