Fear is at the root of all difficult emotions we experience. Navigating it should be done with care. As a species we are frightened of feeling our fear (now how’s that for irony) because it can threaten to consume us and/ or we can feel cowardly if we do admit to ourselves that we even have it. We must overcome our fear of fear if we are to remain emotionally healthy and clean and sober of whatever addictions we have or to get clean in the first place. One way of dealing head on with fear is to tell it that it is welcome to enter when it knocks on the door of our psyche.
