Yes, this statement is so true for any of us who have had to make the hard decision to face ourselves, our addictions and our sadness. Indeed, we all have to pray that we have the courage to face those situations in our lives where we have to admit, finally, that it’s do or die. We live with the conviction that something has to change. And I have found personally that it is when I decide to change, when it is that I admit that I need help, that my courage grows inside of myself and I start to find the resources and the help that I have been looking for and praying to find.
I now live out the Steps of recovery in my personal life and share with others how it does take courage to change. Also, once we take the step to seek help, it is then that our fears of “what if ” no longer decide our fate!
