Humility – Recovered 1157

150 150 Mark S

The virtues of self awareness, acceptance, and self-honesty, give us the courage and Humility to be vulnerable, to be truly humble. In other words, by working on these virtues we increase our capacity to be humble in our relationship with ourselves and others. However, if we lack self-awareness and self-acceptance we will also lack self honesty and therefore fail to be humble. We’ll be unable to show our true self to others, to be vulnerable, and will lack authenticity in our relationships.

Tonight, we talk about Humility

Willingness – Recovered 1154

150 150 Mark S

In early recovery, you’ll hear a lot about mindedness, willingness and honesty. If you are now, these are the three keys that can help you stay sober in the long-term, and offer a short and sweet blueprint for how to approach your new life in recovery. Willingness is usually the first of these attributes you’ll need to get sober. Because if you’re not willing, you’re not going to be able to do the things you need to do to succeed.

Willingness is when you are willing to do something out of choice and not because someone forced you. This is an important quality to have when you are in recovery. By being willing to get yourself into recovery, you would prefer to embrace this change instead of fighting it.

Integrity – Recovered 1152

150 150 Mark S

Recovery is founded on a number of guiding principles that help people know how to live life sober, including honesty and integrity, among many others.

So for people in recovery, integrity isn’t just a buzzword. It’s the principle that should ground and govern your recovery on a daily basis, at home and at work. When you feel tempted to make a decision or to act outside of your internal belief system, it can become challenging and risky for your recovery.

Faith – Recovered 1148

150 150 Mark S

When people break away from addiction they are likely to see some benefits immediately. The early days of recovery can be hard though, and unless the individual believes that it is going to lead them to a better life they may give up when things get hard. There is no real way to prove conclusively to somebody that their life is going to improve significantly if they remain sober. They have to take a leap of faith and believe that this is the case. It is this that gives them the motivation to continue.

Faith is often associated with religion, but it can actually be defined as confidence or trust in a person or thing. For example, trusting somebody involves putting faith in the idea that what they say is true. Another way that faith can be defined is to say that it is something that a person believes in that does not require logical proof or material evidence. A leap of faith is when people decide to believe in something even though they may not have enough compelling evidence to back this belief.
