I think there are quite a few people that relate to my circumstances. That or they love reading the rambling of a bipolar guy swinging wildly betwixt mania and depression.
Everyone likes to watch a car wreck.
I’ve been noticing some things. I have gained a LOT of followers over the past few days. As in, I’ve doubled my follower count. I’m also seeing guys from all over the world. I wouldn’t have thought someone from Turkmenistan would have any interest in my writing.
The blog followers are a very diverse group. People from all walks of life. From the locations of some, I guess they are also from several different faiths.
I don’t write that to pump up my ego. I’m stating this for a very simple reason: PEOPLE EVERYWHERE, FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE AND FROM ALL FAITHS ARE HURTING.
These people are hurting in a myriad of ways. Some are fellow sex/porn addicts. Others are the spouse of an addict. Some are former spouses of an addict. Some addicts are women and most are men. Some just might be interested in reading painful things. A few are clergy that are in sexual recovery. A couple are pretty powerful dudes.
If you are in a similar situation, learn from my mistakes. I have lost my faith and lost my way in my program. I have blamed others for my problems. I am pulling myself out of denial again and it sucks.
Follow your program. Keep your faith. Celebrate Recovery frequently says, “Don’t give up before you receive your miracle. It’s just around the corner.”
I like that.
The guy I want to sponsor me testified to that last night.
Here’s to working a program.
