Conquering Anxiety With Love <3

Tonight has been filled with so many soft and sweet--yet difficult to ignore--lustful notions. I am now convinced that a #lovewins mentality can conquer anything. But that's such a hard pill to swallow. It's an overzealous supplement to most. And continually overwhelming to myself.I've never been a firm believer in faith. But everything around me begins to shine.  Sitting back, I begin to relax after lulling my gorgeous wife to sleep with a beautiful passage by our hometown hero, “Mitch Albom.”And although everyone is asleep. You can tell that "family lives here." You may think I'm crazy by telling you only...

How Recovery Tees Help Me!

In my early recovery, I was terrified; reentering the “normal” world terrified me, changing every single part of my life terrified me. I had to drop 99% of my friends and I was glad to do it because my new life was more important! If they were true friends, they would understand and maybe even come back into my life, if it worked for me. That’s the type of selfishness I need in my recovery, I was always a hedonistic, people pleaser and rarely thought about myself! Once I got out of treatment I promised myself that I would always...
