Lately, I've noticed not as many people share their woes with me, they're not calling to bitch about their husbands, sons, daughters, coworkers, exes, friends, etc.
I like it.
It means that al-anon is working for me. The hand of al-anon is different.
I stopped telling, yes, telling them ... I stopped telling them what they should do, and the biggest change is that I stopped consigning their bad behavior, or what I believed to be unbecoming behavior. I no longer go along with the "I'm miserable, so everyone around me has to be too" and I'm no longer on the "team" of anyone who is living to cause harm to others.
Living one day at a time has been the most brutal challenge in my life. The first five months were truly devastating for me. The choice to drop that worn out doormat of myself in to the trash can and walk away was a difficult one, the consequences of my actions have evolved in to a more beautiful life.
I am grateful.
When someone says "I want what you have" ... I suggest they participate in a few #alanon meetings, I think when I went to 40 meetings in 40 days as part of #lent is when it really stuck.
