We Have The Key

005

.

“So often time

it happens,

we all live

our life in chains,

and we never even know

we have the key.”

.

~ The Eagles

.

Fear, anger, hate, pride, jealousy;

some of the many links in the chain

that prevents us from living a life

that is happy, joyous and free.

Love, kindness, patience, tolerance, forgiveness,

we all possess the master keys that can open any heart.

Today, ask a friend, ask your Higher Power

to show you how to use the many keys that

the Great Creator has given unto us all.

Recovery is finding the key to serenity and peace of mind.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

God loves you and so do we.

Fears

“We reviewed our

fears thoroughly.

We put them on paper,

even though we had

no resentment in

connection with them.”

.

BB,   p. 68

The ego of the active alcoholic

is a delicate flower which will wilt

as soon as someone looks at them cross-eyed.

Fears of all colors and shapes are always dancing

around in the foggy mind of the drunk,

paranoia is the by-word of the day – or night.

In sobriety, we list our sins and we also examine

the feelings of fear, rage, anger, jealousy,

those things that when we were drinking always

created problems for everyone.

When doing the steps, be thorough,

don’t forget to let God remove all of the defects

of character, even those feelings that prevent one

from enjoying a life that is happy, joyous and free.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

Jealous of God

“They may be jealous

of a God who has stolen

dad’s affections.

While grateful that

he drinks no more,

they may not like

the idea that God has

accomplished the miracle

where they failed.”

.

BB p 128

TIME : Things I Must Earn.

The family, friends, co-workers and others

must also know that recovery;

the rebuilding of trust, healthy relationships,

and healed family dysfunctions will take time.

For the recovering alcoholic and all of those around them,

jealousy and blame must be eradicated from list

of feelings and negative thoughts.

Today, one day at a time,

no blame, no jealousy, no negatives,

just show the family and friends

that time does heal all wounds.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

Delusional

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Most

people

suffer

from

delusions

of being

adequate.

The true psychotic definitions of the delusional person

usually involve paranoia, jealousy, erotica and grandiosity.

Dementia also causes delusions which are similar to the

psychotic types and includes loss of memory.

Drinking alcohol and doing mind altering drugs brings about

dementia and delusional thinking.

The affected truly believe that their problems are real.

The paranoid believe that someone is out to harm them,

or maybe the FBI or IRS is stalking them.

The jealous types believe that there are those who want

what they have, their job, their spouse, and/or their possessions.

“In the erotomanic form of delusional disorder,
the primary delusional belief is that some important person
is secretly in love with the sufferer.
The erotomanic type is more common in women than men.
Erotomanic delusions may prompt stalking the love object
and even violence against the beloved or those viewed
as potential romantic rivals.”  * 
*

And of course there is everyone’s favorite delusional person,

the grandiose; my car is better, my house is bigger,

my job is more important, my money is greener and just

about everything they have ever done in their lives is

more spectacular than anything anyone else has ever done.

How does one get their self esteem when they are a sorry,

pathetic, disgusting drunk or addict, they become delusional.

Fighting two demons, the addiction and the psychosis,

at the same time is a daunting and often a losing battle.

The psychotic are as resistant to change as is the addict.

The delusional truly believe that everyone else has the problem,

they are OK, it is just that you do not understand.

The delusional will be the last to know that there is a problem.

Be kind, be loving, but do not be patient, get professional help.

Therapies for change need to be explained to family and friends

so they may support the affected in their efforts to become whole.

Do not delude yourself.

Your self esteem is OK, God said He does not make any junk.

Be kind, smiling is not a delusional characteristic.

Be loving, delusional is a one way street. (ME, ME, ME, I, I, I)

Be the person your Higher Power wants you to be.

Healthy minds and healthy bodies do not need drugs, alcohol

or chocolate, well maybe just a little chocolate.

Happiness is not being delusional.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
