The rebooting journey is a hard one but we are here to make progress by trying different methods until we find the right one. One method that has helped me is to journal my experiences. Last year I began writing about my reboot process and it helped keep me motivated and accountable. That was the case until my life became more difficult and it was then that I went back to my journal and instead of finding it helpful and motivating, it caused me great pain to read through it. I couldn't even find the strength to add to it new entries about my growing and intensifying problems. It wasn't easy for me but out of pain and sorrow I deleted my recovery diary. It was then that along with other things I have recently encountered through my recovery process that I had to admit something I didn't want to accept about myself which is: My heart is more broken than I cared to acknowledge. I do see myself as very resilient but I know I still have lots of work to do to allow myself to find inner healing. Being that I'm still not where I want to be in my recovery I know I have to be extra careful so my heart stays safe. I do want to find my SO but I know that my priority is to recover from this addiction. This addiction can easily blind me and make me vulnerable to believe in someone who's not really interested in a committed relationship. I will not go into any details about why I'm saying this but my advice to NF members who are single and feeling lonely is to (Please!) make your reboot your priority. Learn as much as you can about addiction recovery and about yourself. What is it about yourself and your circumstances that pushed you into this addiction. For me I believe that a big contributing factor came from my very abusive upbringing. So I recommend that you work on yourself first and not stress over finding the right person. He/she will eventually come into your life. But don't forget that happiness comes from within. We can be complete even while single. Yeah, I know it's sooo hard but it's what we need. We only get one heart so best keep it safe. We can't afford to forget that if something seems too good to be true it most likely is.
