The Power of Acceptance: Embracing Change for a Brighter Future
One of the great tools of solution focused recovery is that we keep this solution focus on ourselves, and what we need to do (or not do). Scratch the surface of any alcoholic or addict, and you will find a codependent person. It is just the nature of the spiritual malady from which addicts suffer.
The manifestation of this codependency is trying to control people, places and things. The addict is so unsatisfied with his/herself they try to make everyone and everything else responsible for their happiness. This creates a dismal and failing attempt at a wholesome and fulfilling life.
When we get into the Steps and healing in recovery, we recognize that we can only control our own thoughts and our own actions. By learning and practicing what thoughts and actions really work, then our emotional life follows.
And with enough effort and practice and guidance, we do find peace of mind and serenity. We don’t worry about others, or ourselves, or the world anymore. We trust Source is looking after everything.
If you would like to know more about living an authentic life where you can live in healthy, loving and whole relationships – with yourself, with your Creator, and with others, contact Serenity Vista Recovery Retreat and find out more.
