Do You Believe in Fate?

What about destiny and karma – what truly lies at the end of the road to recovery? Do you believe in the spirituality that surrounds us? Whether your views are religious, guided, or open; do you believe? Sometimes we don’t believe. Our lives are so filled with tiring experiences and constant temptations that we begin to accept the life of addiction as our normality.

Maybe for you, life stopped being normal years ago . . . After all, there’s nothing normal about the spiraling pit of darkness that addiction can drown you in.

Have you ever heard the saying: “Everything happens for a reason”?

It’s okay to be skeptical. How can everything happen for a reason? How can, whatever spiritual guide is out, there put us through hell for any silly reason? How can they give us enticements – and take our loved ones away from us in the process?

Maybe you’ve also heard “life is unfair”. It’s true; life is unfair. That’s what makes it fair – that it’s UNfair for everyone. You pick out a single human being anywhere on this planet and they will have at least one problem that makes them ask: why me?

Everything happens for a reason and life is unfair. Addiction is an ugly thing to suffer through, but if you let the positive forces guide you on your journey then eventually the outcome is recovery.

Sometimes those forces come in the form of our family and friends, and sometimes it comes from the strength deep within our own souls.

The truth is – fate is so complicated that no human mind can properly wrap itself around it. No one knows how it works or why, but it’s there constantly, influencing your life by giving you choices to make and reasons to exist.

You were addicted to drugs – maybe alcohol. It was a terrible experience, but you fought through recovery and you came out sober on the other end. The addiction you suffered only strengthened your resolve as a person. It molded you into someone with the power to grow and overcome the fiend within.

As terrible as it sounds, addiction happens for a reason. It’s not a pretty experience. Suffering through addiction is a terrible ailment that can completely destroy a person if not rehabilitated. Despite the terrible process of overcoming addiction, the outcome is a happier life and a happier you.

The important thing to remember on your journey is that it’s for a reason. Life is unfair and that’s why you stumbled on the path of addiction, but your resolve after walking the road to recovery is the reason why your addiction existed.

The key is to turn every negative aspect of your monster within into something positive. Your goal is to dispose of the beast. When you accept the reasons behind the good and bad happenings in life, it’s much easier to live in a sober calamity.
