Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn.
Many sex and porn addicts do not want to accept outside assistance as part of their recovery. This resistance is part of the disease. Overcoming this resistance is vital to healing. If you struggle with this, it’s time to take a good long look at your fellows in recovery. In so doing, you will almost certainly see at least a few people who are no longer active in their addiction, no longer behaving in problematic ways, and no longer experiencing serious life consequences as a result. And almost all of those recovering individuals, if asked, will say that they did not establish or maintain their sobriety on their own. Instead, they trusted the help of others. In other words, they’ve worked Step 2.
Task for Today
Actively trust your fellows in recovery, learning from their experience, strength, and hope.
