It took me a long time but after years and years I finally noticed that I had a long list of problems that I had never solved. I complained a lot about them - to myself as well as other people.
I often woke up in the morning worrying about them.
Thoughts about them plagued me during the day.
Guilt and regret kept my self-esteem from growing and kept me from going after my dreams.
In fact, they were ruining my life, but I wasn't doing a thing to solve them.
My appearance and my health concerned me but I didn't know what to do about them.
My ability to carry out my responsibilities worried me. I worried that I was just incompetent.
My problems with people disturbed me mightily.
Thanks to recovery, I actually followed suggestions and made a list of those life problems and asked for help in figuring them out and taking action to solve them. I got the help I needed and I'm still working on some of them, having arrived at a place where patient improvement is good enough to keep me comfortable!
