hey, damaged. you are a blessing.
thank you for bringing wonderful words from AA that I would consider my "healing companions". I've always wanted to join an AA meeting. I am emailing a counselor though. He is an SLA addict. he's the counselor of my (former?)boyfriend.

suds

you are so welcome. I am glad I could help someone. What is a SLA addict? And how do you feel having the same counselor as you ex?

You don't have to join a AA meeting you can just go to one. I love AA. The first time I went to AA I was court ordered and I hated it. I was embarresed to go. Now I am in recovery and I love my AA. It could mean life or death for me.
Hope to hear from you again.

hi damaged.

SLA-Sex and Love Addict. He is also working on his 12 steps like my ex boyfriend who is what the Center (where he spent 3 months under a rigid program)calls a Love and Relationship Addict. Having his counselor as my "email"counselor is very comfortable for me for i don't have to go on with the background of my relationship with my ex. and he counsels me as me only...completely separate from my ex bf but at least he already knows the whole story. i'm at ease with that fact. Me and my boyfriend decided to part ways for both of us to heal. We still love each other so much...thus, this decision. We parted in tears during our very last phone call...which was just yesterday until...we meet again and that is in God's hands, right? 🙂

suds I hope this finds you doing good. Breaking up is hard to do!!! I am going through a break up myself right now and it's not easy. One day at a time...thats what they say anyway. And yes it is in Gods hands I believe.

Happines lives for those who cry, those who hurt,those who have searched, and those who have tried, for only they can appreciate the importance of people who have touched their lives.

Just yesterday I was driving down the road thinking about something I always told my son. I told him since he was a baby that he could do anything he put his mind too. Yesterday I was thinking the same for me. Then I heard a man say this in a meeting tonight. You can be anything and do anything you want to do and be as long as you don't take that first drink. Hell for me today I feel that in my heart. I do and learn new things everyday that even amaze me!!! And thats pretty damn hard to do.

Damaged and Distracted,

I hope you both see this. You are gifts from God. Just like a beautiful sunset, or the way the trees look in the fall, or in the early spring when they are beginning to blossom. If others haven't been able to see this, it's only because their sights were not focused on the blessings in life. I am so grateful every single day for having had the chance to get to know the two of you the way I have. You both have made my life so much richer, and I have learned such incredible things from the two of you. Please, just once a day, try to see yourselves the way others who visit this site see you--as gentle, caring, wise, sensitive, and insightful souls who are generous enough to be vulnerable in this place with the hope that it will help someone else. Thanks so much for all you give.

Sincerely,
Mal
