It has been almost four years since I wrote this post and it just amazes me how different my life is these days.
Change can be hard and certainly scary but change is hope. Don’t give up!
How many times have you heard the saying, “Nothing changes if nothing changes”? How about the definition of insanity: Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result? Maybe you’re like me, before I entered recovery, and have never heard these sayings before. Well, you have now so what are your thoughts?
I understood immediately what they meant; I was living it. However, the process of making that change and doing something different took me awhile. Yep, change is a process and sometimes difficult, I get that. The one thing that held me back from making even the smallest of changes was fear. Mostly fear of the unknown. At least I knew what to expect when things stayed the same and there was some sick comfort in that. Unfortunately, the sick comfort became unbearable pain: emotional and physical.
