You have the power to be your own best friend, or your own worst enemy. In the lifestyle of use, we demonstrated how we can be our own worst enemy. We engaged in behaviors that didn’t resemble loving ourselves or others. Recovery gives us an opportunity to rediscover humble self-love and love of other people, places and things. When we learn to love and respect ourselves and others, things have a way of falling into place. In other words, when it comes to our addiction and recovery, sometimes things need to fall apart in order for better things to come together. Today, I will begin the process of forgiving myself for deeds done in the past, so that I can make room for self-love. I will take stock of how life in general has a better outlook, when I act from a place of love.
