Feeling pain for the first time in recovery is one of the hardest things we ever have to face. We don't know true pain until we go through it with a clear mind. It hurts so much when we are going through it but somehow as we work through it, it gets better. At the time, we feel like it will never get better but one day you cry a little less, you are not so angry, you laugh, you smile, you open up again.
This is the true gift of sobriety. Today we can feel our way through life and come out stronger on the other side. Today we can be grateful for our clear minds and our clear hearts. What progress we have made!!
