Today’s ‘Ask’

Hello friends! Today’s ‘Ask’…

How do I get out of feeling terminally unique?

Terminal uniqueness used to get the best of me. I thought I was the only one. The only one that felt sad, insecure, frustrated, or in pain. It is funny when I think about it now and how distorted my perception was. I am one of 7 billion people in this world and at the core of it; many of us are experiencing the same exact things. We are all imperfect individuals and unique in our own ways. The more I keep my thoughts and feelings to myself, the smaller my world becomes. And the smaller my world becomes, the more the terminal uniqueness perception likes to come in and play.

Connection has been vital in my experience. Connection not only to others, but also to myself and a power greater than me. That is what fills me and up and completes me. The terminal uniqueness separates me and keeps me distant. It all comes down to my attitude. I have to stay humble and not allow for the ego and pride to get the best of me. The more I do this, the more I am open to giving and receiving love and can continue on this path of spiritual and emotional fulfillment. One day at a time, I honor and trust myself. This leaves little room for feeling terminally unique.

Sending love,

  3. Found this. It runs in line with what I think the question was about:
    “Staying clean is not a guarantee that nothing bad will happen, but the principles in the steps teach us how to live on life’s terms and give us the courage, strength, and wisdom to stay clean no matter what.” Living Clean p.112

  4. Develop patience and you can conquer ANYTHING! & The secret of patience is finding something to do in the meantime. I went to 900 meetings in 900 days. Too busy to fret about ANYTHING. R U Willing?
