All the same, we would mistake any personal criticism as a threat.
We either became alcoholics ourselves or married them or both.
The healing begins when we risk moving out of isolation. By gradually releasing the burden of unexpressed grief, we slowly move out of the past.
We learn to reparent ourselves with gentleness, humor, love and respect.
Yet we kept choosing insecure relationships because they matched our childhood relationship with alcoholic parents.
These symptoms of the family disease of alcoholism made us "co-victims" -- those who take on the characteristics of the disease without necessarily ever taking a drink.
You will learn to keep the focus on yourself in the here and now. This is a spiritual program based on action coming from love.
