Have you ever just tried to sit? To stay? To listen?
I can't say that I've succeeded at that task very many times in my life. But I sure have tried.
However, the willingness to even try such a behavior can make a world of difference in the life of anyone in recovery.
Of course, when you do try, dreaded FEELINGS may emerge, but, that is the whole point in cleaning up your life.
If you wanted a feelingless life, the numbness of your addiction would have kept you there just fine.
But you didn't, because you chose to stop.
Just for today remember that when you look at sitting still and feeling as a CHOICE, not a life sentence, you will free yourself to move past the feelings and live the life you were meant to live.
