Being quiet 9/20

On this platform I share it all. I share what I am going through; the things I am discovering about myself…good and bad. The happy, sad, mad and glad.

I am an open book so to speak. This feels like a safe place to do that.

Before I entered into recovery, even as a teenager I remember trying to speak my mind….on every occasion, whether it was wanted or not.

I had a need to be heard and a need to be right.

Today I am learning to listen. I am learning to listen before I jump in and interject with anything that I might THINK I know.

I am learning the value of where I am on my path and where another might be on theirs.

I am not in charge or here to judge another’s journey. I can do my best to learn from the others and then retreat back to my own business.

I think this is a form of kindness to myself and the other.

I am a true addict living my life one day at a time in recovery. I have been substance free -meaning NO drugs or alcohol since 5/23/10. My intention is to share my experiences daily in the hopes to free others from the fears of being who they truly are. My wish is to bravely tell my truth so others can tell theirs as well. I want to be free of self hatred and doubt. I want to live a life of joy, kindness, love and grace. Thank you!
