We’re headed into the holiday season here in the States, which is a challenging time for all of us, addicts and “normies” alike. So it’s a good time to be writing part 2 of my post on the outer circle because 90% of the trouble we ALL have is due to poor self care.
Breaking the outer circle down into sections is, in my opinion, the only way to go. After listening to Patrick Carnes on the cd my therapist gave me when I was in treatment, I was able to divide and conquer my outer circle by coming up with 3 or 4 activities to put in each section.
- Self Image
- Self Definition
- Non-genital Sex
