Acceptance – Recovered 1222

150 150 Mark S

Acceptance is an opening of your heart to the realities of life and to the ways in which you have been impacted by your life choices. It means you don’t fight against the realities of your life, but accept them for what they are and use them to grow as a person and move forward in life. It’s a major part of becoming a better person emotionally and spiritually and it can serve as a huge boost in recovery.

Just think of acceptance as a way to forgive yourself for the problems caused by your alcoholism. You’ll no longer be agonizing over the mistakes you made, the people you hurt, and the so-called failures that you feel were caused by your addiction. With acceptance, you can forgive yourself for these concerns and heal your heart.

Tonight, we talk about Acceptance.

Call Recovered About Acceptance

150 150 Mark S

As we grow and practice acceptance towards ourselves we’re able to be more accepting of others. When we make peace with the fact that everything is exactly the way it is supposed to be in the present moment, we can make peace with the variables of life around us, including other people. Compassion gives us the ability to grow in our own regard, while we also aid in others’ personal journey to self-acceptance.

Tuesday we talk about Acceptance.

Living a Sober Way of Life – Recovered 1220

150 150 Mark S

Sobriety can have different meanings to different people. For some, sobriety is the condition of not having any alcohol or drugs. Some in 12 step recovery fellowships, they define sobriety as achieving good mental health. To many, this seems like a more fulfilling approach to sobriety, rather than just avoiding drinking or using drugs.

Living a sober life is better than one spent fighting with addiction. Living a Sober Way of life will provide more clarity, focus, drive – and you’ll slowly start to build your relationships back up to go on living as a productive member of society. To those on the outside, you will become much more interesting.

At first, it might be challenging to see the real value of living a sober life. Many recovering addicts will glorify the old substance abuse days, often claiming their life was more fun. But our story is that using wasn’t fun anymore. We needed a new way of living.

Tonight, we talk about Living a Sober Way of Life.
