Do you think back on some of the crazy things you did while drinking and feel overwhelmed with guilt and embarrassment?
Feelings are overwhelming. Especially when you don’t know how to cope with them.
Every feeling serves a purpose and one of the greatest gifts of recovery is learning to recognize feelings, NOT panic, and use them as an opportunity to improve.
Feeling bad about things you’ve done in your past gives you ammunition to punish yourself and that’s a dangerous trap. Look at feelings as feedback. See yourself taking in the feeling, seeing what you need to work on, and moving forward from there.
You can’t evolve and grow without discomfort and mistakes. That’s how we learn!
Focus your energy on who you want to be in your future instead of what you did in the past. You can’t change the past, it’s over, it’s done. And you full power of who you become from this day forward.
