desperately seeking detachment

My anger is like a zombie in unconsecrated ground. 3rd meeting in five days tomorrow. Each meeting offers: comfort, security, love, support, empathy, serenity, peace, acceptance .... ... and the relief to admit that my emotions drive me insane.

those emotions won't drive you insane forever.

with time, sobriety, effort..... you'll come to FEEL them as they come and go like the clouds.... the weather..... the changing seasons.

They're an ever-shifting part of our landscape of life. None bad, none, good, none unbearable.

Addiction creates the insanity. Emotions amplified by the warping effects of the alcohol or the drugs or both. Our ability to rise up and simply meet them undermined by our addicted brain's racing madness.

You'll be OK.

Everything will be wonderful.

Stay sober, do the work, let your life unfold into a beautiful new chapter.

Yeah, brains are weird. Mine does all kinds are weird stuff I wish it wouldn't. Learning to live with it is a challenge, but I think you are up to it!

Congrats on the 5 days! You are rocking it!
