EXHAUSTION

 

In the depth of despair, I found I was ready for bed before the sun had gone down. I figured my metabolism required more sleep than most people do. I felt continually exhausted from trying to solve all the problems that arose from addiction. It had become a 24-hour job. No wonder I was always exhausted! I had no time for myself because I was spending all my time on someone else. Once I started working the Nar-Anon program, I made time for me. In the beginning, giving myself a half hour for a meeting was amazing. It was a small amount of time to spare, but to me, it was a monumental change. It felt good! Another change was learning to use acceptance to quiet my mind. I never realized how the constant scenarios going on in my head were contributing to my mental and physical exhaustion. It is amazing to now discover how little sleep I actually do require. I was trying to figure a way to escape a future that was not even here yet. I had a negative attitude about the addict and was surprised to find after attending meetings how my negative belief was wearing me out. Releasing the addict was a freeing experience for me and gave me a newfound energy. My life was no longer in constant turmoil, always waiting for the next crisis to get involved in. I now have more energy to do the things that are important to me.

Thought for Today: Although my life is far from perfect, it is much more manageable today. I do not know what will happen; I only know there is a loving power that I can trust to care for me. When I begin to think crazy thoughts, I will remember to let go of my fear and be free.
