and avoiding excess tension
Dual Recovery is about much more than remaining abstinent and taking
ones medications. It's about changing our attitudes and learning new
ways to live. This does not happen overnight. We don't need to demand
perfection or punish ourselves for mistakes along the way. It helps to
be patient and gentle with ourselves.
We can not rush recovery. Insights and serenity come in their own due
time. The Steps make sense when we work through them carefully and
methodically. Easy does it, reminds us to be gentle with
ourselves and not burden ourselves with more than we can handle.
We try to approach life in a relaxed manner while taking responsibility
for living in the solution. Things have a way of unfolding when we are
willing and patient.
