Thought For The Day

Quote #1

The walls we build around us to keep sadness out also keeps out the joy.” (Jim Ronn)

Quote #2

“In an effort to create safety and self-reliance in your life and relationships, you may have built walls around your heart and accumulated tension in your body. Although sometimes these walls of protection are useful, they can, over time, act like shells of fear that block your true love. These shells can keep in the love you want to offer fully and keep out the love your heart yearns to receive.” (David Deida)

Quote #3

“People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges.” (Jospeh F. Newton)

Bonus Quote

“When we allow the walls around our hearts to become rigid, and stay that way, we assign ourselves a slow death. Like the very air and water that flows through our physical body to sustain it, love must flow through our heart to keep it supple, and to keep us truly alive.” (Jeffrey R. Anderson)

Peace, love, light, and joy,

Thought For The Day

Quote #1

“Alcoholics and all types of addicts may seem apathetic to the problems they are causing. Be aware that they are relying on an innate defense mechanism, that being denial.” (Anonymous)

Quote #2 

Addicts of all types and close relationships rarely work out well because addicts tend to live in a constant state of resentment and blame, leaning towards lives filled with selfishness and self-centeredness, where their ability to be intimate is greatly compromised, where feelings such as jealously and resentment are typically magnified, where financial problems pile up more than not, and where their fingers point outward more than inward at what’s wrong in their lives.” (Anonymous)

Quote #3

“It’s not that some people have better willpower than others to overcome an addiction, it’s simply that some people have finally become FULLY ready to change, where others have not.” (Anonymous)

Bonus Quote

“Recovery from any addiction is far more than just stopping drinking or using whatever substance one is addicted to. It’s an ongoing process of growing and healing – mentally, emotionally, physically, and especially spiritually.” (Anonymous)
