Keep it Simple

It is better to be wanted too much than not a all. —Anonymous—
It may seem that so many people want our time and love. Parents say we
don’t call often enough. Children demand our time. Our partners say we’re gone to much. Our sponsor tells us to check in more often.
When we feel off balance by all these people, we need to stop and rest. We need to remember how lonely we were when we were using. No one wanted our time and love then! Now we’re important to others again.
You can handle all this by giving people what they need and ask for, within reason—not what you think they need, which may be way too much.

Maybe you need Al-Anon, to learn to love others while taking care of yourself.
Prayer for the Day:  Higher Power, help me put my time and energy to
best use today. Help me find the balance I need between work, play,
loving others, and self-care.
Action for the Day:  When I feel I have to give too much today, I’ll stop
and ask my Higher Power for guidance.
