May 11 • Where is the Pivot?

Day 306

Overthinking seems to be common to the recovery experience; the past couple of weeks I have had more than my share of analysis paralysis. Like in other parts of my life, I'm better in the rapids than I am on smooth waters. I don't want my life to center around being an addict, but I don't know what my choices are, and it's hard not to get wrapped up in trying to control and plan the future. Balance. Can an addict have balance? Of course, they can, but the pivot point may not be the same as it is for others or even as they thought it was for themselves. The search for lifelong balance also seems to be defined and fueled by one day at a time.
