Do we need wisdom to recover? We first have to make a decision that we want to better our lives and to recover. Would our lives be worse if we do not recover? The A.A. serenity prayer says “the wisdom to know the difference” Whether our lives are being lived in the right way. I think our lives would be worse if we did not recover. What would my day be filled with if I did not strive to get an education and or work? They the day would be filled with watching T.V. or listening to everybody gossip about each other. Or talk about how bad things are and do nothing about changing the situation. What is wisdom then? Miguel Ruiz in the Voice of Knowledge says about wisdom. “Common sense is wisdom, and wisdom is different from knowledge. You are wise when you no longer act against yourself. You are wise when you live in harmony with yourself, with your own kind, with all creation.” That would make recovery and wisdom hand in hand. When you no longer act against yourself and instead want the best for yourself. Which you think should include better mental health and a better life. Do you think recovery and wisdom go hand in hand?
