Speak the truth and you'll never have to remember what you said.”  ~Tigress Luv


Today is the day we are to be honest with ourselves.

I've worked with people with addictions and the biggest hurdle impeding their recovery is the fact that they are never honest with themselves. To be honest with their selves means to admit that they have a substance abuse problem, and that they've had no control over themselves or their addictions.

However, admitting they have an addiction is hard on the addict as the craving for the drug is so strong it doesn't want you to stop feeding it. To admit that they are addicts would mean that they must now take control over the drug and not give in to the intense cravings for it. In a sense, the cravings speak louder than the truth and play games with the user’s head. To admit they have a drug problem means that they are now responsible for eliminating the drug from their lives, and that is something the ‘addiction’ doesn't want them to do.

Are there certain things in your life that you are not admitting to for fear of having to give them up?

 Oftentimes, when in a breakup, we refuse to admit to the fact that the relationship is over, or was flawed, or even that we, ourselves, may have been flawed. By staying in this denial, we are subconsciously ‘keeping the relationship alive’. We are avoiding facing the relationship demise and going through the withdrawal, and we are holding on to the fantasy that we are not flawed or that we have complete control over our lives. Like the addict, by lying to ourselves we don't have to let it go and move on.

~Today I will be honest with myself. I can lie to strangers, or attempt to hide the truth, but, underneath it all - even in my self-denial - I secretly know the truth. I need to admit to myself that this past source of my pleasure is now over and gone.

  Today I will see how I may refuse to admit my relationship is over because, just like the addict, I don't want to give it up. Today I will see how I may crave my relationship or my ex as a way to end my pains of withdrawal from them.

  Just for today I will let go of my relationship and accept the fact that I have been in denial regarding its ending. Just for today I will let go of my denial and allow the day to take me where it will. ~~


“The difference between an active, using addict and a recovering addict is that one is lying to themselves and the other is being truthful with themselves.” ~Tigress Luv

"I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain." ~James Baldwin

"All you must do is accept all that is unacceptable to you." ~Cheri Huber

“You do anything long enough to escape the habit of living until the escape becomes the habit.” ~David Ryan

"It's not denial. I'm just selective about the reality I accept." ~Bill Watterson
