I once saw a sign that said,
"Don't Feed The Fears!"
I thought about that. I have so many fears. I think they all stem from the trauma and abuse received as a child.
One way I "Don't Feed The Fears" is that I don't read the newspaper, I don't watch television, and I especially don't watch the news. If the t.v. is on in the home and someone turns on a newscast, I be sure to leave the room or find something to occupy my thoughts, eyes and ears. I used to watch mystery or police type shows/series. I don't watch those anymore either. I don't even miss them or that part of my life anymore.
