We all live with fear, but do you ever stop to think about when is fear your friend and when is it your enemy? Most of us just accept fear as part of who we are. We take pills to manage our anxiety, worry and depression or we numb ourselves with alcohol, drugs or work. Our unconscious, however, knows the truth, and it works overtime to try to get us to pay attention. The fears keep bubbling up to the surface whether we want them to or not. Often an unrelated event will trigger an old fear and we get anxious or angry or fearful without any awareness of the connection between the old fear and the current difficult feelings. As we learn to pay attention to how we feel in the moment, we can separate the past from the present and let go of irrational fears. We spend anywhere from 1 to 8 hours a day worrying. That's up to half of our waking hours, yet only 8% of our worries come true. That's a lot of unhappiness and wasted time and energy. Join us Thursday to learn how to overcome irrational fear.
