When lack of results toward recovery goals brings about increasing frustration, it’s all too easy to get so caught up in the emotion that you miss out on the bigger picture. Recovery isn’t a straight-line progression of one success after another. Often, the learning curve takes a number of twists and turns before flattening out and heading toward a desired goal.
In the meantime, when frustration threatens to overwhelm you and cause you to cast aside your recovery goals, instead of giving up, get it together. Take constructive action. Get to Work.
