When we return good for reproach

Blessed are ye when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for my sake

~ Matthew 5:11 ~


One of the challenges facing each of us are those who continue to be torn with hate. They despise the turning and transformation of our lives toward health and wellness. They revile against our recovery and progress we are making. They may even manufacture and spread falsehoods behind which there is not a shred of truth. Yet, we continue to move forward in our journey through recovery. Even when people are prone to speak of our past mistakes, hurts, and hangups. Recovery teaches us to be kind to ourselves and toward others. They despise us for the change we are making because they are unwilling to face the truth of their own powerlessness and unmanageable life.

We draw sweet comfort from our allies, from our Higher Power, and those whom we align with in sober support meetings. Our desire is to focus on the present. We have moved beyond our past failings, removed ourselves from unrealistic expectations of what the future may hold. Our recovery is not about proving to others we are capable of changing. Our recovery is about focusing on how we are changing toward a sober lifestyle.

Let us continue to go forward and return good for those that may reproach us. We continue to be helpful and generous with our kindness and generosity.


Today’s Thoughtful Meditation

I realize that people, whom I’ve associated with in the past, may revile against me and my recovery journey. I shall not bend ear toward their hatred for the progress and change I am making. My recovery is my own personal journey and through the grace and mercy of my Higher Power, I will continue to move forward in kindness toward self and others.

This blog shares my sacred journey through tragedy.  I was called for audacious hope whilst grieving a living loss.  And I had to choose - will I be better or bitter?
