A question was recently posed to me by a sister who reached out to me. I felt impressed to ask your thoughts, my readers, so with her permission, I post the question:
Did you ever get to a point in recovery where you were totally stuck? No motivation to go forward, no real desire to go back; just stuck. I've been thinking about my journey a lot and realized I am doing better than I thought. In the last few months I have consistently gone 3-4 weeks between relapse, I was able to take the sacrament again, AND last night I got my temple recommend renewed. I mean, really, that is pretty significant considering where I was a year ago. What a great place to be! So why am I still feeling stuck? Part of me is realizing I am back to what my life was before everything imploded, and I am experiencing again the lack of certain life achievements that helped drive me to addiction in the first place. I'm worried about not having enough momentum to move forward. Perhaps its one of those "fake it til you make it" scenarios? What do you think?
The beautiful thing is, I feel anyone can offer insight here. I, myself, am anxious to read your thoughts!
