This week I want you to pick one day in advance and that day from the minute you wake up to the last thought before sleep note every time you think or feel ‘should’ or ‘if only’. These are the expectations that fuel our resentment; once you know how many you have each day then you have an idea of how much your own attitude sets you up to feel resentful.
Animals are often a huge part of someones life who has suffered from trauma or addiction and many people talk about how valuable their pets are to them when they come into recovery. I am one of these people and am immensely grateful for the companionship, comfort and pleasure the pets I have had throughout my life have brought me. I will be forever grateful to my cat Frosty who was there for me through thick and thin, probably saving my life by just being there.
Addicts are not usually very good at relationships – not with others nor with themselves – so it is perhaps not surprising to note recovery’s standard wisdom and experience which advises to first keep a plant, then a pet, all before we attempt an intimate relationship. This often starts with a cactus rather than an orchid (!), then follows the pet who teaches us to commit… to walking, feeding and loving another being through which we hopefully learn to love ourselves enough to enjoy kindness with others. We often hear wonderful funny, spine-tingling, heart warming stories about people in recovery and their pets and are hoping to share a few here if you are willing. Just send them to our office on firstname.lastname@example.org, text and pictures if you like, and we will of course keep your anonymity…Mandy Saligari
