Mike Gliem: NO HOLDS BARRED.
For anyone still suffering, or for those in early sobriety, I want to say that, with any emotion, any physical pain, trauma, if you go through it, you’ll grow through it.
Things don’t always get better in recovery, sometimes situations don’t get better but we do get better. We get better so we can handle these situations.
This also leads me to encourage people to look at their circles, who they choose to surround themselves with. If they don’t feel like they are encouraged, or inspired, or if they feel like their circle doesn’t want the best for them, then they aren’t in a circle, they’re in a cage. You need to surround yourself with those that fit your future, and not your past. You need positive people.
If you’re struggling, you need to remember that today’s struggles are developing you for tomorrow’s strength and you just need to keep going.
