When I was at my lowest points of despair and self-destruction with my Bipolar Disorder, Alcoholism, and Porn Addiction, sometimes all I could do was somehow barely muster the inner resources to keep going.
At one of my rock bottoms, I had little but the mantra, “Keep going,” to keep me going. I intuitively realized that I hadn’t gone that far to only go that far.
Now that I am in recovery with tools, therapy, meds, a support network, and the Fellowship and spirituality of AA, I have a similar mantra that I use at times: “God didn’t bring you this far to drop you.”
Don’t quit 5 minutes before the miracle happens!
