What It Means to Be Fearless in Recovery

Fearless Fearless

By Tommy S., former client of The Meadows

Fearless:

  • Seeing a new beginning in each day  
  • Putting the day before behind me
  • Accepting each new challenge
  • Using failed challenges as a inspiration and direction to conquer the new ones,
  • Meeting and accepting new people for who they are, and letting them see me for who I am inside and out
  • Extending my hand to those who want it, and to those who do not,
  • Looking at the good in people while also not fearing the bad in people
  • Looking at the bad in me and making it good no matter how long it may be,
  • Doing the right thing even when its difficult,
  • Not criticizing others while being able to criticize myself,
  • Speaking the truth no matter how hard the truth may be,
  • Being able to listen to the truth about me while being ok with it
  • Looking ahead with goals, while letting failed goals help me achieve the new ones

Accepting fear while being fearless, is what fearless is to me.
