I haven't posted in awhile. For multiple reasons I guess. I've had company in my home and my days are busier, but it's also been a little because I haven't felt like it. Life is better in some ways, which has reduced my need for my online community of sisters, but I also felt a little distanced from that same community. Some minor things happened which highlighted that my situation is different from most wives in our world. Yes, I know we all have our own stories, but I've never read anything close to my particular circumstances. Now, in some ways my circumstances are better, so I'm not complaining about that, I just don't seem to really connect with any of the stories I read. There are similarities of course.
Anyway, I wanted to share some things that have helped me. I just finished and then started again a great book called, "Dr. Bridell's Logical and Rational & Poetic and Beautiful Completely Guaranteed Eat-Half Diet for All Your Appetites". It is amazing. It has nothing to do with pornography addiction, but he mentions addiction once or twice.
As wives of addicts we are caretakers. Many of us are mothers. These things usually result in us not taking very good care of ourselves. This book provides a simple pattern for how you can do that.
I also just started Brad Wilcox's new book, "The 7-Day Christian". I've read the forward and the first chapter and I love it. Again, simple concepts that strike deeply. Most of us have struggled with a crisis of faith at some point in our lives. So far, this book give you some thoughts about how to deal with that. Again, I'm only one chapter in.... but I love Brad Wilcox.
I hope your summer is going well sisters.
