take a deep breath...

ok, just hung up the phone with our Priest, going to meet with him tomorrow morning at 11am. Ok, slow breaths, in... out.... in... out... this is a good thing.... he's only human, it's only the Church....

If only y'all knew of my former, comfortable "organized religion" hang ups and resentments, you'd understand my fear! hehe, goofy, I know!

Scott, keep reaching out. I understand that fear, that creepy crawly feeling, that .... that THING about the church. Been there, done that, got the Catholic School Diploma. I believe much of my problems with that whole part of my life were my perception. Millions of people can't be wrong, can they? Religion and recovery are separate, and both are good for us.

Just make sure you work those steps, as you said you wanted to, and keep doing positive things for you. You sound like you are doing right things. I assume you're working with a sponsor and that will serve you well. I've found that this program works for those who work it -- ya know, the whole "rarely have we seen a person fail who has thoroughly followed our path" thing.

Blessings,

Suzanne

Been there. Had a hard time with that one....still do really. Had a talk with the priest myself, still working on resolving all my issues with organized religion....but it's progress not perfection right? Just remember to breath!

I will pray that you have the same kind of wonderful experiences with this that I had.
