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.
