There are certain situations where we may be under stress, but feel we cannot do anything about them. We can spend days and nights worrying. As hard as the situation may be, we need to understand how it is affecting us. If we have done everything we can do and the situation remains unchanged, we need to let go of the worry. Sometimes these situations may revolve around other family members or friends and may be extremely serious. It comes back to making a decision to let go of the worry. We are only losing valuable energy worrying or trying to change a situation we can’t.
Sometimes there are very difficult decisions to be made. Once we make a decision we need to let it rest. Many people use their energy continually reviewing the decision. It doesn’t matter whether our decision is ultimately right or wrong. Worrying about a decision is putting our recovery on hold. Our recovery must be our number one priority.
