Something that helps me let go 12/5

There have been many instances in my life where I should have let go of something – but I did not want to.

I was afraid. I was afraid to let go of relationships, homes, cars, jobs. I would state that ” I don’t like change”. But life itself is in a constant state of change.

I was taught the biggest lesson in letting go…by letting go of my relationship with booze and drugs.

This was a relationship that you could have paid me money to let go of and I wouldn’t. I couldn’t.

I thought that the relationship with my pills and wine were the best friends I ever had. I thought they were holding me together.

It was difficult to let them go but I was to discover a power greater than myself in all of it.

So now today..if I need to let go of something I use my past experiences.

I ask myself “What things in my life did I not want to let go of…but now I am so glad that I did?”

My honest answer is…everything.

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!

  1. Absolutely D….For some reason many people NEVER stop to ask themselves questions! I guess the not knowing seems safer than facing the change, and yet therein lies our answers. If we never question ourselves how will we ever get to know ourselves? Right on! VK ❤

  2. Indeed, Danielle, the truth of life is that we will have to give up everything, including life itself. I have never read anything that put it so simply and bluntly. Our “letting go” is, in a sense, just practice. Thank you.

    1. I have really been fortunate as of late to just start letting things go…or change. The irony is as you say – we eventually have to let go of everything- even life ❤️
      The true freedom for me is when I realize- it’s going to change regardless of how much I hem and haw over it…so to give up the fight of change is the freedom to let go ❤️it’s life right?
      Have a great day Dr. 🙂
