Hi

On me walking in to the spiritual recovery program from day one was very painful for me.

I am a non religious person yet I do embrace spiritual values in to my life today.

By me being a non religious person would I understand what serenity would mean to me.

The only person I can change today is myself.

No matter how unhealthy people are today I am unable to change them.

Yet I do understand that my unhealthy reactions to other people I can change.

I did not know or understand my emotional triggers on walking in to the recovery program.

In time I would understand why I was angry.

In time I would heal the hurt inner child in me.

In time I would recognize my fears and face them.

In time I would understand why I was so frustrated.

In time I would reduce my expectations of people life and situations.

In time I would understand why I was felling so isolated and lonely.

In time I would recognize my fears of emotional intimacy.

In time I would understand why I was feeling so bored and no so productive in my life.

Understanding my serenity and how I can change is great for me today.

In time I would recognize my emotional vulnerability.

Is my physical age and my emotional age almost equal today.

Recovery is about a healing process.

If I am not willing to identify my pains I am not able to heal them.

If I am not willing to be honest with myself I am unable to be honest with other people.

If I am not willing to respect myself I am unable to be respectful  with other people.

There are not enough hours in the day for me today.

The most precious things in my life today are relationships and time.

Money and material things are only temporary things in my life today.

Do my family in any way fears me today.

Can my family tell me if they are feeling vulnerable today.

Was I a victim in my life, yes for sure.

Was I a perpetrator in my life, yes for sure.

Am I suppressive aggressive in any way today.

Am I an outward aggressive in any way today.

When I try to justify myself I do  know that I am not being healthy.

Love and peace to every one
