AA Thought for the Day

Abnormally Fearful
At heart we had all been abnormally fearful. It mattered little
whether we had sat on the shore of life drinking ourselves into
forgetfulness or had plunged in recklessly and willfully beyond
our depth and ability. The result was the same—all of us had
nearly perished in a sea of alcohol. But today, in well-matured
A.A.'s, these distorted drives have been restored to something
like their true purpose and direction.

- Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, (Step Twelve) pp. 123 - 124

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