Sometimes we are powerless because of our stations in life. We may be in a situation where we feel others have power over us. We may feel that we are trapped by the demands of others and that there’s no way to please them all. It’s a double bind: To please one is to disappoint another. Sometimes when we feel stuck and frustrated with our relationships, we look for a measure of control by escaping through our addictive behaviors.
At times like these we must trust our HP and the program. We need to learn to express our pain instead of trying to escape through the bottle. When entering the program you will be given good news and bad news. The good news is that you will get your feelings back and the bad news is you will get your feelings back. When in Hell keep walking, this too shall pass. Nothing is forever.“Nothing is permanent in this wicked world, not even our troubles.” Charles Chaplin
