Belonging to yourself 5/26

Being in recovery has allowed me to experience the true sense of belonging.

This is belonging to something bigger than me…yet at the same time being able to be me.

Some times in this life I have become part of certain social, political and even religious groups. This is where like minded thinking and sometimes conforming to ideas seems to be the fee of membership.

But in recovery – there are groups and meetings where I have learned not to judge another for their beliefs; be it political, religious or just plain outrageous.

I have learned that to belong also means to belong to myself.

I do not have to believe anything I do not want to…I have the freedom to feel how I feel… and express those feelings freely with other humans.

This enables me to learn to be me.

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!
