Most people are apprehensive when it comes to change. It might be fear of the unknown or we don’t want anything to disrupt what we currently have. Instead of embracing it as a chance to grow, we avoid it at all costs. However, one thing’s for sure, we will all experience changes, both negative and positive. It is how we react to those changes that determines or ability to adapt and move forward. For myself, getting clean was a difficult but positive change. At first I wondered how I would cope with life without using drugs. What I have found is that if I am open to change it makes it a lot easier to handle, if I am resistant or try to control the situation, I am usually more uneasy and irritated. Today change is a chance to grow emotionally and spiritually.
