Learning to accept others can be challenging, especially when an addict is trying to recover. Generally people struggling with addiction choose to put their attention on other people and focus on the problems of others in efforts to avoid their own responsibilities. Being judgmental towards others can hinder an addict in their recovery process by slowing down personal progression.
Below are a few tools that can be used for a person to focus on their personal growth:
Learn to be Present
This is one of the most simple techniques to exercise when focusing on personal growth. When seeking this form of growth, being in the moment and enjoying what is happening now, will help relieve stress and pressure concerning the future. Keeping the mind generating present events deviates it from dwelling on the past and pondering the future.
A Grain of Salt
How meaningful is a grain of salt? One single grain among thousands of others, seems pretty insignificant, right? When it comes to the opinions of others, it’s important for recovering addicts to take negative, judgmental words with a grain of salt. In doing so, a person has the freedom to heal at their own pace, be authentic, and live without fearing the opinions of others.
Life is never easy and as life continues on, it becomes increasingly complicated and demanding. When recovering from an addiction, the more simple life is, the better. There is a respectful period of time when someone leaves recovery to give themselves emotional and physical space from the chaos of life. Creating space between the people in life that drain energy and time will benefit the recovery process after returning home.
When someone is suffering from substance abuse, emotional abuse follows. Regardless of the type of abuse, it brings out the worst in people. Oftentimes prior to forming an addiction a person undergoes abuse in many different forms that pushes them to find solace in alcohol and drugs. There is help on the horizon. Previous emotional abuse can be reconciled with therapy, treatment, and a few tips on continuing personal growth.
