Today in my life I am happy, I have truly never been able to say that and mean it. I mean there has been moments of happiness, joy, blissfulness, tranquility, but it was always fleeting, never sustainable, never fully realized or enjoyed, never maintained or cultivated. I always fell back into old behaviors, demons, patterns, substances. Today though, through my faith in a higher power, the AA program, the practice of yoga, and love, I can truly say without a hesitation or a feeling of,

Today in my life i am happy, i have truly never been able to say that and mean it. i mean there has been moments of happiness, joy, blissfulness, tranquility, but it was always fleeting, never sustainable, never fully realized or enjoyed, never maintained or cultivated. i always fell back into old behaviors, demons, patterns, substances. today though, through my faith in a higher power, the aa program, the practice of yoga, and love, i can truly say without a hesitation or a feeling of, "when is the other shoe going to drop, when am i going to s***w this time up, when will i fall prey to alcohol, why couldn't i love that person, or why has god abandon me again" i can say, "i can always ascend, continue to transform, be comfortable in my own skin, love and be loved, believe in god without control, live a peaceful existence without any toxins in my body, and be athletic without being consumed with my outer appearance just consumed with my health on the inside." this time in my life i truly feel inverted, upside down, where all the oxygen rushes to my head, and provides a different perspective, a perspective that shall be the norm, a place of peace, a place when my consciousness and subconsciousness are one, a place when i truly live in mindfulness, where i realize that their are no ordinary moments, that every breath i take is a gift, every word i speak can be from a loving position not selfish, where i can commune with my higherpower every single moment of the day, where i can be loved for who i am on the inside not out, where i can fully love unselfishly and wholeheartedly in complete surrender. continue to invert my fellows, i shall breathe with you upside down where everything will be released and manifested.

With the work of recovery, I was able to become more in tune with my emotions. The first step in doing so was (the jump into the unknown)- ceasing the behaviors I used to use in order to numb, hide, or repress my emotions.

After that, I practiced identifying emotions, and noticing them as they came up for me. Sitting with them- without trying to numb or detach in any way as I had been used to for so many years; was terrifying. All of the sudden I was feeling- and seemingly feeling every emotion I had repressed for so long- all at once. I felt like the ground below me had been broken, and I was all of the sudden floating, tumbling, falling, unsteady.

One of the most difficult yet profound moments in my recovery was making the decision to allow myself to feel. As simple as that was, and as complicated as it seemed. My window of tolerance to handle emotions was incredibly narrow. I experienced emotional dsyregulation  day after day as the flood of emotions spilled out.  Looking back at this, I realize this was just part of the process. After living for years numbing my emotions, I suddenly felt run by them.

With time, patience, and practice, my window of tolerance began to expand. It was only by following directions to the professionals I was working with, practicing distress tolerance and taking opposite action (taking positive action despite how I felt), was I able to regulate emotionally, identify my feelings, and find freedom.

When you repress “negative” or distressing emotions, you repress all emotions- joy, serenity, gratitude, awe, and peace.

Today, I practice checking in with myself throughout the day. When I notice myself feeling particularily sensitive, I make it a point to pause, breathe, honor what I am feeling and ask myself in that moment, “What is it that I need right now?” I use it as an inner compass.

The freedom of breaking through the chains of fear, addiction, a false sense of “safety” which had kept me imprisoned not only from life but from my own authenticity- is a gift that has transformed my life. In essence, it has allowed me to recover my true self that had been abandoned. ✨VS
