The Five Truths About Fear

This summer, I hope that you had time to relax and get away with friends or family. I had the opportunity to visit Montreal and for some camping. I also took time to consider the direction of this blog and I have decided that I will continue to write here and I will post one article each Thursday. As time permits, and where I can feature guest posts, I will post additional articles.

Aside from work and my weekly post here, my fall looks to be busy as I am planning to take a course in abnormal psychology and Superhero Therapy.

Getting High on Recovery will continue to feature articles that explore the role of acceptance and commitment in recovery, mental health, along with articles about the personal side of addiction and mental health. I invite you to consider submitting your story to this blog. And please share my articles with your friends and family.

As always, Getting High on Recovery will offer free articles as a support to you and your own mental health and recovery experience. If you or your family are in need of professional care, please consult with a registered and trained professional.

The Five truths about fear

1. Fear will never go away as long as you continue to grow
2. The only way to get rid of the fear of doing something is to go out – and do it
3. The only way to feel better about yourself is to go out – and do it
4. Not only are you going to experience fear whenever you are on unfamiliar territory, but so is everyone else
5. Pushing through fear is less frightening than living with the underlying fear that comes from a feeling of helplessness
Susan Jeffers, “Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway,” Page 30.
