I Love Being Me

“Of all the recovery behaviors we’re striving to attain, loving ourselves may be the most difficult, and the most important.” The Language of Letting Go

One of my past sponsors suggested I look into the mirror, specifically into my eyes, and say “I love you James”. He said if I can set a timer and spend 5 minutes every morning doing this, saying things like “you’re a good man, I’m proud of you, you rock, you’re handsome, you’re wonderful, I’m so lucky to be you, etc”, it would give me one of the greatest gifts in my life. He was right. I did it most days for the entire year he suggested, and I got the gift: I love being me. And that’s just one more reason why ILML!
