I give in...

I surrender
No more resistance
I accept what is
And enjoy it

I was scared there for a minute, Kev! Glad you are doing well - long may that feeling last.

I was scared, too!

You're right.....learning how not to fight it, is half the battle.

Sooo worth it!

I don't like the titles some people give their posts. Some of them are just trying to draw us in like they do on the news..."wait until the 11 o'clock news for important news about the two headed man" and you wait and nothing..... or in cases as this not what you expected..it is on purpose...tricky

Never my intention to mislead or trick anyone, nor to start any controversy here or elsewhere.

Hi Penny, I cant tell you what to do or not do.

For myself I do the best I can everyday and accept life as it is, rather than fight to control and resist everything. For me acceptance and surrender have taken on different meanings in recovery.
