Stop running from everything and everyone for once and deal with sh*t. I read a post the other day that was just too good not to share, it went like this…. “You can eat the kale. Drink the alkaline water. Take the supplements. Do yoga. But if you don’t deal with the sh*t going on in your heart and head you’re still unhealthy.” Alcohol used to be my solution to not having to deal with things internally. When I put down the bottle I moved to exercise. Working out became my escape and I still wasn’t dealing with anything. It was a little over a year into sobriety until I truly realized what I was doing and actually made some changes to start dealing with internal issues I had been neglecting for years. Thank gosh recovery is progress not perfection.
