The Moment

When did you realize that enough was enough? What was the defining moment?  Your rock bottom was the moment that you knew something had to change. I can compare my rock bottom to jumping off a cliff without a safety net. This past week has been a blur of people saying and doing unacceptable things to me. I feel like I am losing my  ability to control my anger. It is so bad that I have to pull out my backup plan…..When all fails, just walk away from the unacceptable behaviors of other. Wednesday I decided to start a clean slate with a classmate that ended less than 24 hours later. Her true lack of understanding showed. She acted so inappropriately that I honestly cannot believe that I even gave her a second chance. Life for those of us in recovery is truly about second chances. We are given a fresh lease on life in recovery. Individuals not in recovery can be skeptical. How can a program bring us to a point of total recovery? It is through the steps of recovery and fellowship within the program. The program brings a renewed hope that we can recover from our hurts, habits, and hangups.
