It starts with a thought, this becomes an emotion, and then we decide an action. Which action do we take is the question at the crossroads? Do we go left and continue with that thought as we always have, stuck in that vicious cycle of pain, hurt, addiction, guilt, remorse and low self-esteem ? Or do we start to practice our new skills and utilize our plan for recovery with the tools that our new foundation for recovery has shown us. THIS IS OUR GROW OR GO MOMENT. This will determine outcomes that can affect the rest of our lives. There’s that moment in time when we make the spilt decision to work harder for our change or fall to our self- justification thinking on why we should continue the actions that constantly hold us victim.
