Seeking balance and avoiding excess tension

Dual Recovery is about much more than remaining abstinent and taking ones medications. It's about changing our attitudes and learning new ways to live. This does not happen overnight. We don't need to demand perfection or punish ourselves for mistakes along the way. It helps to be patient and gentle with ourselves.

We can not rush recovery. Insights and serenity come in their own due time. The Steps make sense when we work through them carefully and methodically. Easy does it, reminds us to be gentle with ourselves and  not burden ourselves with more than we can handle. We try to approach life in a relaxed manner while taking responsibility for living in the solution. Things have a way of unfolding when we are willing and patient.
