Today I celebrate my own independence. I’m happily married to my husband who is (finally) in a real recovery of 37 months. But this isn’t about him, it’s about ME. 😎
🎇 I’m celebrating my independence from sex addiction in my life.
🎇I’m celebrating my independence from fear and worry about his recovery or a relapse.
🎇 I’m celebrating my independence from needing anyone else to validate me as lovable, and worthy.
🎇 I’m celebrating my independence from my old views about safety, love, marriage, sex and communication.
🎇 I’m celebrating my independence from resentment towards my husband.
🎇 I’m celebrating my independence from triggers and heartbreak over past wounding from my husband’s disease-induced behaviors.
🎇 I’m celebrating my independence from non-recovery.
🎇 I’m celebrating my independence from “religion” and celebrating my complete dependance upon Jesus.
What were my old views?
I took back responsibility, ownership and the keys to my “safety” instead of seeing it through another person’s behavior.
I gave up the:
– fairytale, for a love story.
– idea that love is a feeling – rather, it’s a choice.
🗽 I wish you all a happy independence day, today, and every day forward.
