Well I don't quite understand why you're fighting with yourself, but I guess I don't even need to know why - that's because answers to "why" questions don't help me very much with any problems. But when I get to fighting with myself, and I realize it's just wasting time and my emotions, then it's time I get into action.
I remember this time when I was worrying. Now I was worrying about what happens tomorrow if she don't call me? What if she's found someone else and gonna dump me? Now the other side of me is saying you know she's gonna call you, but it's gonna be at 3:00AM. Then I got going about that $1000 that the next president is gonna send me. But that might not be until June. So why don't I take out a small loan to fix the house some more? But then I'll have to pay interest. Oh and I need to get my Jeep bodywork done, so maybe I better borrow $2000 then when the president send's me the check, I'll have money to put on the $2000, but I'll keep maybe $500 just to put in savings. So I go on and on and on and on and on and on...
Well that's when I hopefully remember that "CONSTRUCTIVE ACTION NEVER FAILS". So I get started on something that benefits someone else, but it can also benefit me some too. I probably will call my sponsor if I want to hear a long talk, or I'll call one of the other guys in my support group. That's usually when I find out that someone really needed to hear from me. Then I forget about what was worrying me, which was my girlfriend that didn't call - then she'll call while I'm talking to program buddy. So before you know it I have enough action to keep me from worrying for a good while.
That's how it works for me. So what I'm saying is when I get into taking "Constructive Action", it never fails that it helps me "let go" of whatever it was that I was holding onto that gave me grief.
God bless and welcome!
