I did not get instant recovery, but I learned to be grateful for the lessons the program has given me.
One thing I am learning from this program is patience, which is defined as "the ability to endure waiting
or delay without becoming annoyed or upset and to persevere calmly when faced with difficulties. "
From the SESH Daily Reader
I do believe that one of the main obstructions to serenity for me
is a lack of patience with situations or with myself for that matter.
I like the two words here as a goal in my recovery, "persevere calmly".
I always have a choice for hysteria or calm. Compared to some I am
relatively calm on the outside but the truth is that my
insides do not always match my outsides. We learn about that phenomenon
in Nar-Anon and it's a good eye opener. To make the two come together is
a matter of practice and for me a joyful hope !
Thanks for letting me share.
