Recovering Me

On the subject of addiction and recovery


The most profound piece of recovery that  I was able to accept exactly when I needed it was the reality that I could actually give myself permission to try something different, Especially if what I was doing wasn’t working for me, And that I had the power to decide, to choose if I was going to be happy. Feelings could be changed. Feelings are not based in fact, and they come on and leave again just as quickly. Just because I feel something doesn’t mean that it is the truth. My perspective is only a representation of how I view the world and events and people in it. From my experiences, I’ve learned that my perspective can be totally defective at times, unique as it may be. But it is mine and it isn’t the same as yours.
