03-04: Nobody Said It Would Be Easy…

Nobody Said It Would Be Easy…

How glorious it is – and also how painful – to be an exception.
~Alfred de Musset~

It’s not always easy to do the right thing, especially when those around you are not.  Dare to be different…stand on your convictions, and don’t allow others to convince you to compromise in that which you know in your heart is the proper course of action.  It may not always be the easiest course, but in the long run, it is always the most rewarding.

Thought for the day
In this day and age people all over the world are being sucked in by those promoting the spirituality of comfort, the human approach to dealing with life’s deep questions.  The “don’t judge my actions and I won’t judge yours” approach to determining what constitutes morality and immorality.
In 12 step fellowships all across the world the majority of members seek the softer, easier way.  It is the norm for folks to enable one another and cut each other slack.  Are you willing to stand up and with God’s help, be truthful and claim remission of our addiction and recovery (emotional and spiritual) as the ideal to strive for or are you promoting temporary relief from the addiction as the ultimate goal?

For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called.  But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are… ~1 Corinthians 1:26-28 (NKJV)~

“Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord.  Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.”  “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” ~2 Corinthians 6:17,18 (NIV)~


About SLAA Tilburg

Wat is seks- en liefdeverslaving? Wij in S.L.A.A. geloven dat seks- en liefdeverslaving een voortschrijdende ziekte is, die niet kan worden genezen maar die, zoals veel ziekten, wel tot staan kan worden gebracht. Zij kan verschillende vormen aannemen – inclusief (maar niet beperkt tot) een dwangmatige behoefte aan seks, extreme afhankelijkheid van één persoon (of meerdere personen), en/of een voortdurend in beslag genomen worden door romantiek, affaires of fantasieën. Er is sprake van een obsessief-dwangmatig patroon, seksueel of emotioneel (of beide), waarin relaties of seksuele activiteiten in toenemende mate destructief geworden zijn voor de loopbaan, het gezinsleven en het gevoel van zelfrespect. Als seks- en liefdeverslaving wordt veronachtzaamd, wordt zij altijd erger. Wanneer wij echter een eenvoudig programma volgen dat voor een reeks van mannen en vrouwen met dezelfde ziekte succesvol is gebleken, kunnen wij herstellen. In S.L.A.A. leren wij de realiteit te accepteren dat wij deze verslaving hebben
