Grateful for Mistakes

Comments 5 Standard

I am grateful today for mistakes because they teach me humility, and about the kindness and forgiveness of others. I’ve recently had issues with relapse, and it taught me that I had a huge hole in my program- if I could use without causing disaster, and felt like I could go under the radar, I would and I did.

Turns out that I’m still a huge idiot when I’m using. More so than normal. :)But what surprised me was the amount of support and love I got, and how willing to forgive people are. Perhaps most of my friends are used to a much dumber version of my current self, so maybe it’s just that the bar’s been set pretty low.

I was lucky, the person who was most disappointed this time around was myself.

  1. Everyone makes mistakes. Not everyone is able to learn from them. That fact that you know that they make you more humble and a better person says a lot about you. I hope you have the support you need, whatever you’re going through. Sending hugs!

  2. Haha, This reminds me of a dear friend of mine. He would use heroin and work the program like he wasn’t using, go to meetings, do service work, make calls. He was taken home as a result of this. I feel like you are getting it. You are so in touch with yourself. Sounds like you know what you need to do. I’m rooting for you.
