Avoiding AA & Other Commitments
Then you noticed yourself avoiding AA meetings and phone calls from sponsees. You’d procrastinate on important commitments only to feel more stressed out later, and then you avoided them even more. Now it feels like you’re always falling behind, and you just can’t seem to get it together. You’ve hit a wall.
On top of that, you still feel so much pressure to be on your A-game all the time. You worry about letting so many people down including your AA sponsor, employer, family, and the sober community. But now it just feels like you’re crumbling under the weight of it, and you have no Plan B.
You’ve also noticed that it’s affecting your home life. You’re not present with your family, and when something happens to undo your already precarious “balance,” you begin to unravel. Maybe you’ve taken time off to recharge – and all that did was make you dread having to come back home or to an AA meeting.
You’ve looked online and read countless articles about the importance of delegating, taking breaks and meditating, but none of it really seems like a long-term solution. You’ve worked so hard to get here, so the last thing you want is to lose everything. You’ve already sacrificed so much, and you want to find a way to balance all the spinning plates without losing yourself in the process.
