So to trust oneself can bring to one’s life a new dimension of hope that there might be a possibility for a positive change. But we need to take the road less traveled — not the road that is worn and rutted with the traveled path of hopeless journeys and adventures. The road less traveled is the one that joins with fellow travelers who are filled with hope and purpose.
Rowe says that by listening to our inner voice and so trusting that quiet inner voice is the beginning of getting hope for your self and serves as the key out of depression. Bill W., says that as time passes and we begin to “get” the program of recovery that we are better suited now to follow those intuitive hunches which come with our renewed trust in self and the god of our understanding.”
A comment. Most of the worn and rutted paths that are a big part of our sadness and isolation is due to the way we ruminate and fixate about the way are life is spinning out of control. We continuously try to think our way out of box which has us imprisoned in those rutted paths, dead ends. This negative thinking is familiar–it’s like the train that travels on rails that are shiny with years of continual use.
Now, with our Twelve Step program of recovery our minds are taking the path that leads to peace and serenity. We have a way out of our isolation and pain.
Are you willing to take the road less traveled? Let us help you do just that. We can chart out a path for you that works and works for as long as you stay on the path. That’s a promise.
