Been in recovery from anything is work. A lot of work. It can be painful and uncomfortable at times, having repressed and suppressed years of feelings and emotions and looking at the dark side of ourselves as well as the light.
Getting sober brings everything to the surface for us to look at, deal with and heal.
This is not an easy process, thats why many give up or don't make it or receive half the promises of a new life because they switch for less aggressive addictions where they can still "get by."
Its a journey for the brave and the courageous.
It's a journey to true happiness and peace that no addiction can replace.
Dont give up on yourself no matter how difficult it gets, it's gets better always
It's only when we believe all the thoughts we think that we become sad, anxious or afraid , most of what we think is not even true, the easiest way to find this out is to write down what your thinking and ask yourself is it really true?
Does anyone else ever feel like this? When I feel this way I ask God for help and guidance, I take good care of myself and take positive action steps everyday that are good.
I Keep moving forward.Some days it feels heavy and more difficult. I have faith. Faith does not mean I'm not fearful, sometimes my faith wavers but I don't give up.... then my faith returns stronger., stronger then ever.
I have always been incredible sensitive. I thought it was such a curse that I would feel things so deeply, so I used to try out run my feelings. (exhausting)
Today I learn to embrace that about myself because I have come too learn it is a gift, it helps me connect with clients and people in general.
I can relate and have compassion and empathy for others.......Its ok to be a sensitive soul it's a gift not a curse.@marieforleo
