The Pain of NOT Fulfilling Our Purpose

Listen on Your Favorite app iTunes Spotify Stitcher Why is it that so many of us on the path of recovery find ourselves reverting back to old ways without even realizing how we got there, ultimately not fulfilling our purpose. The chaos can be comfortable, self-destruction can be familiar, and it’s what we know. In addiction, we may have felt that our negative consequences were justified by our bad behavior. We deserved the misery. We deserved the pain. We deserved to be miserable, alone, and afraid.  When we enter the world of recovery, we don’t just stop thinking this way. It takes time. When we get overwhelmed with life [...]

Listen on Your Favorite app iTunes Spotify Stitcher If you’ve suffered from addiction, trauma, or have been hurt and betrayed, an automatic and natural response to feel bitter, distrust, anger, or resentment.
