Feeling vulnerable is normal especially when we first enter recovery. It is a good thing. In order to get in touch with the real you, we must become vulnerable. We must open our minds and hearts to anything and every thing so we can really take a look at our life and evaluate the way we have been living.
Take a look at your life. It's not that scary. It may seem that way but once you progress in recovery, you find out that taking a look at yourself and your life is a beautiful. Don't be afraid. We are at an advantage because we know what to look for. Some people go through life and never truly see themselves. We've been blessed enough to survive this disease and move forward to bigger and better things with it.
