Letting go is not only important to my recovery
go is not only important and necessary to my recovery it is major factor in how
it affects others who do service in recovery.
As I look at the different jobs I have done in
service, I find that my voice and ideas made a difference and were even were
sometimes listened to and incorporated into the CoDA structure.
This was good for my self-esteem.
Latter, I took on jobs that required that I
learn new things. From learning
about doing bulk mailing, publishing news letters and meeting lists, to creating
and maintaining databases. When I
started, I knew little of computers, but by volunteering to do things I did not
know how to do, and then doing what was necessary to learn how, was very
rewarding and challenging.
After several years the jobs became easy and I
continued to do them, as it felt good to contribute in something I had become
good at. Then I began to realize
that I was denying this opportunity to others and I realized it was time to let
go and let others have this opportunity, and more importantly to take on new
challenges. To see what HP put in
So I am letting go of what I did.
Providing only answers to questions.
Letting others figure out what I had to learn and make their own
decisions and mistakes. I am also willing to stand by and see what I used to do
crash, if necessary, as that too is part of the learning process.
