Recovered Podcast

Forgiveness is a major part of recovery because as long as you remain angry at the people who have hurt you, you’re inflicting new suffering on yourself. Anger isn’t good for you. Anger and resentment can keep you feeling like a victim. It’s giving someone who has hurt you in the past the power to keep hurting you. It’s important to remember that forgiving others isn’t something you do for them but rather something you do for yourself.

Envy - Recovered 1302 show art Envy - Recovered 1302

Recovered Podcast

Several faiths and philosophical teachings have put forth writings that note the harm that can be caused by envy. It is seen as an emotion that results in misery. Aristotle refers to Envy as “the pain caused by the good fortune of others.” One of the first things we have to do to overcome our envy is to begin letting go of our resentments. We must look at the people we envy and try to view them through a lens constructed of kindness, compassion, empathy, and possibly even friendship. Tonight, we talk about Envy.

Dealing With Conflict - Recovered 1299 show art Dealing With Conflict - Recovered 1299

Recovered Podcast

Every human has to deal with conflict. This is unavoidable, as people have competing needs and desires. This means that it will be wise for people to learn how to cope with conflict as well as learn how to avoid it. Sometimes, avoiding this type of interaction can be negative, because it means the individual is refusing to face their problems. Dealing with conflict is an important skill for people in recovery to learn. Tonight, we talk about Dealing with Conflict.

Many relapse prevention tools have been created to help people trying to maintain sobriety. The Acronym H.A.L.T. is helpful for identifying potential relapse triggers.

Progress Not Perfection - Recovered 1294 show art Progress Not Perfection - Recovered 1294

Recovered Podcast

When people in recovery talk about progress not perfection it does not mean that people should not be trying to be the best they can be. The point is that perfection is too high a goal and that people should aim for something slightly less ambitious. If the individual makes an honest attempt at overcoming their character flaws they will be moving closer to perfection, but it is not likely that they will ever fully complete this journey. Humans are fallible, and the only important thing is that they try their best. By setting the more realistic goal of progress rather than perfection the...
