Bike Ride And IntimacyLike others I find myself out of work again so the challenge is to stay positive.
For me I strive to deal with my life "one day at a time".
Not dwell on the past, or project about the future.
So this morning I rode my bike into the city. And did Step work with a Sponsee of mine. Am in the Al Anon program and written step work is about a journey of what one thinks, feels and behaves. And our motives for those patterns.
The subject we looked at today was FEAR.
Economic insecurity, fear of loosing assets, fear of wife returning to booze and fear of marriage failure were his issues.
Mine are not finding employment, depression, and letting my wife down.
Men revealing these issues to one another is something I have learned to do over last ten years.
My sponsee is only just starting on this path.
I suggested he google fear and learn what other words apply....eg anxiety, apprehension etc. we men are only just learning a vocabulary for feelings.
