Running Away

06 June 2016 Written by 

This week I have faced a character defect that I really never looked at before. I always saw it as a coping skill. All my life I have used it to protect myself. I never looked at it as a defect until this week.

Doing spiritual work this week with a beloved friend, Spirit brought this out into the open. As I child I would run away and hide from dentist appointments, shots, piano recitals, etc. As a teenager, I ran away from home and I ran away from embarrassing situations.

 

Later on in life I would run away from difficult situations in personal relationships. I ran away from people. This week I faced the truth of my behavior. I don’t need to run away any more. I don’t need to hide. I am strong enough to stay. There are new tools that I have learned that serve me well.

 

I choose to stay grounded and connected to myself and Source. I know for sure that where there is Love and Light, there is safety and protection. Let me remain in the Love and in the Light. There is no need to run away any more.

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
