When I entered the rooms sixteen years ago, I was desperately unhappy and wanted to learn and do everything perfectly.
But I needed to slow down and stop trying to force solutions.
I especially needed to get to know myself better, because until I did that I would continue making the same mistakes in my relationships.
So I’ve learned to be patient with myself and to let go of expectations. I can only control what I choose to do. Not my addict.
If I’m happier these days it’s largely because I’m taking it easy on myself. I know that I’m doing the best I can, and that’s good enough.
