Promise 2. SMR, 15th Feb...


 

 Promise 2: Our self esteem will increase as we give ourselves approval on a daily basis.

It is a small miracle, for me, to write out this quote. In times past this phrase would have just gone on one ear- and out the other. Forgotten forever.

Inn the BRB there is an exercise on page 444- which is mirror work... on the bottom half of the page. It might seem really weird to actually talk with ourselves! biggrin ...

I workup on a mountain- and drive along rough mountain tracks. A week ago I was driving along and began to give myself healthy messages- aloud. Years filled my eyes- with joy. They were not wet heedless, blubbery tears... but more or less a deep shine in the eyes.

Today I can feel genuine joy and gratitude. Getting to this place- I thought was impossible.

I had managed top break to impossible bondage bought about by years of C-PTSD!

 

The reading for today emphasises the value of group involvement and group work. I found that this group work and play was possible here- with an online group. here i had the equivalent of many meetings a week! I can attend a meeting several times a day!

My hope is that members will come into ACA- at a younger and younger age. Where the deep resistance has not fully set in. A hope for the world and the future of the world! biggrin ...  ...and for me, too... smile ... ... ...

 Self-talk...

                 went back to a reading, on the main board, with Rosie and PK. Back here after reading the Promises, with a renewed clarity.

                 Most things like this i used to think: "baa, phooey!" That was my impression of the world. Now I am looking at Promise 11. I have to believe that the writers and creators of these promises have undertaken the journey themselves. Sheila and fellow travellers...

The wisdom and release has to come from somewhere! biggrin ...
