If we are single, we see only couples around us. If we are longing to have children, we notice every baby around us. If our adult kids are distant, we see every mother/daughter shopping and laughing every where we go. It is hard to remember that how we perceive these images is totally biased by our thoughts and feelings.
“Recovery is about more than walking away. Sometimes it means
learning to stay and deal. It’s about building and maintaining
relationships that work. – Melody Beattie
