We love doing things ourselves. From a super early age we start to tell our parents “I can do it myself” or “Let me do it!” It starts as a natural response that bleeds over to everything we do. We don’t like to need help – we like to be independent – we like to prove we can do it – we are applauded for independence.
Recovery is the exact opposite. We get to admit we CANT do it on our own, that we need help, that we need someone to be accountable to. Like X3watch. It sends your activity to an accountability person you choose.
It is hard to admit we need help. Making that first step to admit there is a problem and that we CANT do it on our own. And it’s the place recovery can begin.
Are you ready to not be so independent?
