I acknowledge that I am powerless over the ruts in my road that detour me into relapse. But I am not powerless over my internal “drive” to come back out.
My program walk is asking me to re-create a quiet well-lit place for recovery—so I am sending myself compassion. I also send this compassion to others who may find the Emotions Anonymous walk to be healing and self-accepting.
Please let me know if I can help you with acknowledging Step One as helpful and true, as we launch into the New Year.
