Hello Recovery Friends, Readers, and Welcome New Visitors,
Happy Holidays! Thanks for stopping by. . . Well my wonderful friend David Wilson of “Give It Thought” has shot another positive message right into my HEART! And even though this message is not recovery specific, I felt the do fit for those of us who do live our lives in recovery. His website is always packed with so much Love & Encouragement that it is worth the visit! http://giveitathought.com By, David Wilson.
Keep in mind the golden rule of relationships, “Appreciate Each Others Similarities and Respect the Differences”.
Help one another to become their best by showing support and encouraging them to follow their dreams.
*See, now if that is not good solid advice, I don’t know what is? This can be done in our own recoveries as well. It makes sense as we learn to make our amends in relationships we may have broken will active in our addiction. And since we have to set boundaries around “Old Friends”, this may be sound advice to help make new friends.It can also be said, for those who don’t understand that others can turn lives around and become better people in recovery. It can help “Shatter Stigma” of those of us who may have lost our way in addiction, but become better people in recovery. For those who don’t understand addictions, we are people with feelings and a heart. We can and DO change. So our past we should not be Judged by or Our Past Does not Define the caring people we have become in recovery. Everyone deserves a second chance in life. I myself had many people, even in my community that I was able to makes amends and be trusted, and respected again after my Detour with Addiction, and now a Beautiful Life in Recovery!*
God Bless Recovery Friends and Readers,
