THERE'S A HOLE IN MY SIDEWALK

This is for anyone who has suffered from an addiction, or bad choices in their life;

 

 

 

1. I walk down the street, There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I am lost...I am helpless. It isn’t my fault. I fall in. It takes forever to find a way out.


2. I walk down the street, There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I pretend I don’t see it. I fall in again. I can’t believe I am in the same place. But, it isn’t my fault. It still takes a long time to get out.


3. I walk down the street, There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I see it there. I still fall in...it’s a habit. My eyes are open. I know where I am. It is my fault. I get out immediately.


4. I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it.


5. I walk down another street.

I needed this, thank you. It simplifies all the different ways I can feel about a situation, showing stages of a changing mindset, that each time gets better. But the best is the last--that which you have worked and struggled for and can finally do!
