Recovery allows us the great gift of taking off our masks. We stop pretending that we don’t care about all the things that are killing us. This blessing called recovery allows us to experience what is real. Yes, there will be pain and sorrow when we live in the real but a moment spent in reality is better than ten lifetimes spent in delusion.
We are now seeing life with new eyes. No longer do we live in darkness. Seeing what is real can be difficult at times. We lived our lives in blindness and now we have to find our balance as we journey through reality. We have to learn how to get adjusted to the bright sunlight of God’s real truth.
Our eyes have been opened. We stopped believing the lies the enemy has been telling us. We stop pretending and wearing masks. Those masks never fooled anyone but ourselves. They were our security blankets for our face. Recovery is about taking off the masks and being real. Being real allows us to experience how God see’s us and not the illusions we attempted to create about ourselves. God’s perfect love allows us to be ourselves. Being real is a result of our progress in recovery and a gift we receive from God.
