Made A Decision

Made a decision to not drive myself mentally ill by non recovering individuals. I struggle with depression………Gasp! But don’t we all somehow suffer from depression. Addiction suppresses and depresses our ability to think rationally. The struggle is oh so real. Only another individual around the table would truly understand. My father recently said I need anger management classes. Heck I know that and the whole world knows it. Yet I must do the footwork of making the decision to get the help that I need all by myself. No not really. I have a new contact number…..The director of a treatment center. The same director who wants to sit and brainstorm with me. Really? I am really worthy to do that kind of service work. I honestly need to start seeing what total strangers see in me……..A compassionate individual who loves all people.  The twelve steps have been a part of my life since I joined Alanon at the ripe old age of 16.  I joined because of my boyfriend. I have learned many lessons since then.   Change must first begin with you. You are the catalyst of change. It starts with making a decision to change and then following through by making your meetings. Be with those individuals who lift you up and celebrate each month of your recovery. Hold on tight to your anniversary coin. It makes your recovery oh so real. Make a decision today to celebrate your recovery. You deserve it!! Don’t stop believing!
