Having love and compassion for others is one of the many keys to happiness. When we understand that everyone has their trials and are willing to have compassion for what they are going through, you will be blessed with happiness.
It is also important be gentle and have compassion for yourself.
A huge part of my recovery is learning that I cannot control others, I can only change what’s inside of me and how I feel about myself. If I find love in myself than I will find love in others.
I need to be gentle with myself and understand that I am growing and changing every single day. Also, be patient with those around you, they are also growing and changing every single day.
Laugh when all else fails. Laughter is the BEST medicine. Don’t take life too seriously, not one of us makes it out alive. You come into this earth with only your higher power and you will leave this earth with only your higher power but every second in between we all get the pleasure of having that physical contact with another human being. You NEVER have to walk this journey alone.
Life is hard, that’s the beauty of it. We all get to walk through some extremely difficult trials, that’s what makes us who we are today. When things get hard, remind yourself of the things you are grateful for.
I, too have been going through some huge life changes. Becoming sober for 1, but my relationship with my daughter’s father just ended after 6 years. It’s been very difficult to not find validation in others around me. I know I have to fill that hole in my heart with love for myself and love with my higher power. I’m learning to love my daughter’s father from afar. I don’t know what the future holds and if we’ll ever have a relationship again and that’s ok. I know I can get through this, one day at a time. Trusting the amazing support around me and also trust in my higher power that he will guide me in the best direction.
I try to find a positive in every negative. Good things come out of all things. I’m trying to remember that today. Today will be a great day, because I choose it to be that way.
