Ideals versus realities

It may be time to “let go and let God.”


Relationships are conditional.  Love can be unconditional – especially if we are standing close to God and receiving his love as a gift that we can pass along to others.  But relationships are conditional. 


People teach us that their best still puts us at risk at times and we have to distance ourselves for the sake of our own recovery journey.  Perhaps we come face-to-face with the cold, hard truth that our best has not been enough to create a healthy relationship with others.  Maybe our own behaviors cost us relationships too.


As we prepare for the new year, can we acknowledge this?  Maybe get some support to help us unearth what is ours to admit, acknowledge and repair?  This is always a good place to start and finish a daily examen.


May we find the support we need to continue our journey!  And may we be the support others need as they travel their respective roads to recovery too.
