Probably all of us could do with a mission statement! Something to aim for. Actually we probably need a few so we can cover several aspects of our lives to give us that rounded future which gives us growth.
On the relationship front I now have this (which is turning into a mantra I have recited to myself – endlessly – since yesterday)
“I deserve to be loved, cared for and protected by a man who will do his utmost to keep me safe.
To do that I have to love and trust me every day and all the time.”
By the way I’m finding it harder to say – with 100% honesty – the phrase “I don’t love Alex” this morning. Clearly addiction breaking is hard work. But the mantra helps. So do all the sheets of flip-chart paper I now have strewn over my kitchen floor reminding of my LC session yesterday!!
Goddammit I can do this! There’s a lot to be said in the words “I wanna break free” (Freddie Mercury – Queen)
