“Remember it was agreed at the beginning we would go to any lengths for victory over depression.”
I will go to any length to learn the various ways to escape from my addiction to sadness.”
I believe that I am well equipped to do all in my power to free myself from sadness. In fact, I know that the more I begin to really feel and not run away from my sadness or my anxiety, that my self-esteem begins to rise and I begin to feel better and more hopeful. I am noticing that the more faithfully that I follow my program, the more my days are getting better and filled with hope. My bad days are diminishing. I am having more good days than bad days. I am doing all in my power, today, to take all the avenues open to me for my own recovery. (See Tools for Recovery/Main Menu))
My victory over depression is not an end in itself. I am beginning to believe that I am no longer a slave of this interminable feeling of hopelessness. The more I feel I have mastery over the feelings of hopelessness the more I have hope.
God of our understanding help us to discover all the ways that we can be a suitable instrument for helping our fellow sufferers of depression begin to feel better.
