Relationships in Recovery?

Being in a house full of teenage/young adult ladies, one would expect there to be at least some conversation around relationships. I’m not talking about just any relationship, I mean romantic relationships. As well as all the things that go along with romantic relationships such as dating, kissing, having sex, getting married, raising kids…. I think you get the point.

 

But here is the thing:

development

 

And that is the truth- unless you have tackled your own negative thoughts/habits/beliefs/patterns/coping skills then you cannot be fully available and present for someone else.

For those of you currently in recovery, remember that the choices you make today, effect your tomorrow. And if you want the healthy family that you so deeply want, then you need to take steps today. Because ultimately, you are the only one who can change you and you are the only one that can truly influence your tomorrow.
