Personal

Something happened this week that I found to personal to blog about, I also found it to personal to talk about in meetings. It was scary and dangerous. And though I am over the experience I have definitely learned a whole heap of things from it, including how important my support program is.

I also learned that when it comes down to it, I mean really, really down to it I trust 1 person completely. There are 2 more I trust and had the situation continued I would have gone to them. But 3 people-gosh, that doesn't see like a lot.

What do you think? How many people do you trust completely?

  1. ZERO.

    But it is not them, it is me. And I find that very sad.

  2. I trust different people with different things. So, it would depend on the issue.

  3. I don't know, that is so hard, in different situations different people I guess. The only thing I can really count on my HP and me. Sometimes when I give to much trust away it comes back to bite me. I hope your situation is getting resolved!!

  4. I trust my sponsor with my LIFE I am as sick as my secrets, at one time I would not let any one know anything about me I was so full of FEAR, PRIDE,ANGER I was Selfish Inconsiderate. Working the Twelve Steps has changed me from the inside out I love who I am now I had to let another human being know who & what I was so I have my sponsor & one other person whom I trust completely & that s fine with me.I have lots of friends but only these two know all of me & my Higher Power of course.

  6. Hi Emily,

    The way I see it, you are truly blessed to have one person you trust completely! And to have two others that you could have shared with is just icing on the cake! Great topic! What do you think it means when you don't really trust any one person with everything? Like others have said, I can trust some people with some of the stuff but, no one person with all of my stuff. It is sad but, true.

    Love to you all,
    Kathy

  7. I'm sorry you had a scary and dangerous experience. I trust several close friends in my life -- but they are human too so I try to keep my expectations realistic.

  8. Hey everyone...Annette here. Saw that some of you were wondering about me and wanted to let you know I'm still here....just taking a break for myself. I have recently relapsed and also been very depressed and working with a psychiatrist who has diagnosed me bipolar - not sure to what severity yet, but working with some different meds right now to try to stabilize me. I'm still reading and praying for all of you daily. I'm back on the road to recovery one day at a time and hope that you all are doing the same :) I'll comment when I can - been doing good just to get outta bed these days, so bare with me. I'll be back once I get better, and I hope that's sooner rather than later. Please say a prayer for me and thank you for thinking and asking about me. I truly appreciate it.
