As I kept my focus on positive things—love and appreciation for everyone and everything—I started to see tremendous changes in myself, and, perhaps surprisingly, in those around me. Other people weren’t changing all that much, but my understanding and empathy—my attitude—surely was. After about a year, I no longer felt triggered by external circumstances. I lost interest in old patterns of thought and behavior. And the more of life I experienced in recovery, the more resilient I became. I’ve learned I need to do a few things to maintain my balance every day. No surprises there—Steps Ten, Eleven, and Twelve keep me safe and protected.
