We can experience pain, grief, sadness, anger, frustration—all those feelings we once avoided with alcohol and drugs. We find that we can get through those emotions clean. We won’t die and the world won’t come to an end just because we have uncomfortable feelings. We learn to trust that we can survive what each day brings. With prayer and meditation. One day at a time.
Awesome kayce that is true with prayer comes joy and happaniess!!!!
Feelings aren’t facts, there just feelings. I fell into some feeling yesterday. I’m ok now, I brushed that **** off

Think of all the feelings we have already survived in this fellowship of recovery, we are very brave people, together we can get through anything.
Amen to that Janice yahoo!!!!!!
There’s always someone that has gone through something worse, in my experience… No matter how sad or angry I can go to a meeting or call someone in recovery and my situation .. Temporary situation .. Doesn’t seem so bad.. Pray it out!! Thanks for the topic!!
Yes that true Chloeb !!!!!
An old timer used to say we don’t care how u
Feel we only care about what u do about it
The way I feel isn’t as important as what I do
I heard you don’t think your way into the right way of acting, but you act your way into the right way of thinking.
Amen brother !!!!!

Our thoughts consume us sabotage so much about who we really are. Feelings being one of them. But we always have to remember that feelings are just that feelings. Meaning that our feelings can lie to us.
Seems like alot of people in AA had used Anger as thier go to feeling. When things happened, ANGER! On the other hand, mine was fear. Afraid of the mess I was creating and the lies. Now I turn to my higher power and have faith. Faith is stronger than my fears.
Yes it is !!!!!!
Tonight I am feeling a bit lost. I have tried to set a good example for my son. He is lost in his addiction and my long term sobriety seems to be like a slap in his face. I am finding the courage to change what I can which is the tough love of kicking him out. I know he could die on the street but he could also die at my house. I pray the right choice is to let him experience the consequences of his actions. Thanks for listening and any contributing prayers.
Tough love is a hard thing when we love someone. Prayers for you and your son.
I will pray also for u and your son God bless u both !!!!!
