Chapter 71: Addiction and Recovery by Leslie A. Fischman
When it comes to addiction and recovery there will be a lot of disappointments in life. You just have to keep going. Maintaining sobriety is so important for success. If you are going to be too nit picky toward yourself you'll never make it. Don't be so hard on yourself, just keep moving forward.
You can't make someone talk to you who doesn't want to talk to you. Once you get the silent treatment that relationship is pretty much over, meaning move on, and find someone else to talk to.
Never play games with the heart of another. You never know what anyone is going through in life to judge them. Always be kind to others, be understanding of the difficulties they face, but don't make them your problem. Always keep a certain emotional distance from others, to maintain stability.
You can't go backwards in life. Fighting with people that only creates more problems for you moving forward. It's always best to let go, once you let go you can form new relationships and new bonds. When you start to feel better new people will come into your life, but you first need to change in order to appreciate life's blessings. You have to move forward. That's how to find peace.
Don't give your power away to others when you're down and out not feeling well that's a recipe for disaster and self-harming behaviors such as drinking and drug use. You have to let go when a relationship ends. Where one ends another will blossom have faith. So long as you keep busy you should never be so desperate as to wait and get hurt when they return. -Best to just move forward then.
Negativity is a tough subject. There will be interferences. There will be blame. But be careful never to justify the bad acts of others or play accustom to their bad behavior, that's just feeding into it. You cannot stop the future from happening but you can do your best to always have positive foresight, when you cast doubts and fears that generates negative reactions within yourself and to those in your immediate surroundings if you're bothered don't bother others with your troubles in life that causes harm. Fears are nothing but delusions, about what is, normal vs reality. Some realities are unacceptable but not all realities are a consequence of stimuli generated by negativity but a byproduct of an existing mess that is disorganization. Always do your best to stay organized no matter what state of mind, is no excuse. Don't allow your fears to come to fruition always think positive forward -don't give in to hate toward self or others, that manifests blame & nothing gets done, that's when failure occurs.
There's no solution or cure for stupidity. That's always on you. For the long term, consequences for which are your duty to deal with on your best timing not the timing of others, as your luck has run its course when you know you've got bad luck in life when you're timing is off, and you feel behind in life, that's normal. You just have to recover from your mistakes, follow directions and move forward peaceably -that is the solution. There's no underground movement when it comes to normal that's up to each individual to achieve for themselves by themselves sometimes a normal cannot be taught must be seen for oneself.
When you feel larger than life, take a step back, and think twice. Are you sure you are thinking right, or is it a product of your ego or worry. You cannot succumb to your weaknesses and expect to make a good decision when down, you have to be up in life to make good decisions for self and others. That's how life works, stay well. Recovery is a process of downs, once you get going in life don't stop at normal, stop at stable. Always do your best to live comfortably as one of all, included.
You can't go backwards and correct mistakes made you can only move forwards, when you feel that way like you can't move forwards stuck, means there's some error on your part you've overlooked. So long as what you are doing now reflects well upon you the past should not matter as to your present. Sometimes you need to let go. #mymollydollblog Focus on new ideas.
Always be sensitive to the needs of others, you never know what anyone is going through in life, some of us struggle more than others to make ends meet. You just have to have compassion for those who do their best, try their best, and do only what they're capable of achieving in life. You cannot live in regret, life is short if you so choose it to be, looking back too much, can cause harm to your outlook, why they tell you to focus on right now bettering yourself each day. There's always room for self-improvement.
Once you go negative the happiness of others threatens you seems unachievable unattainable. As a result you feel down, or wonder why am I where I am in life and how do I too achieve happiness for myself. Those who are fulfilled in life, have happiness. Those who are not fulfilled in life have unhappiness. There are also differences between those who are surrounded by people versus those who are alone in the World. Those who are alone are more likely to be resentful of those who have it all, thinking that it's because they have more they have less when really it's a matter of what you put out into the World you get back.
