I joined this group because it offered some good courses for sailing and boating. After the phone call this morning, I realized once again that I am lucky to have a program of recovery. I am choosing to complete my assigned task for the group and the course that I am taking. I am not blaming the organization or the person. I find that for some reason though, getting involved with clubs and civic groups seems to be fertile ground for resentments and power struggles. I am not vested in either.
I met with a couple of fellows I sponsor this morning. One is struggling to communicate with a wife who is depressed and not wanting to talk. Communication is difficult when a person doesn't want to hear what another has to say. It's as if we are talking in different languages. One person pulls away, and the other advances in an attempt to force intimacy. These two people may be on a divergent path at the moment. Hopefully, there is enough love to be able to connect once again in a meaningful way.
I am going to inventory this day and then hope for a better one tomorrow. At least getting some sleep seems to put an entirely new perspective on most everything. I suspect that it is time to put away the computer and enjoy the chilly night ahead.
