Sample text

To get well, we have to recover our awareness of the voice of our best or true self. We have to develop the ability to turn inward to discover what path is best for us. This ability, as I noted, is called inward searching. It’s a process by which we tune our awareness to our subjective experience in the moment and allow it to move in whatever direction it takes (Bugental, 1978). Our inward searching is guided by our concern for our recovery along with our intention to discover our personal truth, or at least to discover new possibilities in our relationship with our problem, with ourselves, and with others.

Let’s dig into what that means, and how passivity can sabotage recovery. The Toxic Effects of Passivity on Recovery Passivity makes it less likely that we will discover our path to full, mature recovery. Why?

Passivity separates us from being an active, determining force in our own lives. Regardless of the path we choose, we’ll need to be an active part of the process.

Rigidity can sometimes seem to us like a responsible action, since we’re very carefully following some prescribed path.
