Danny, here. Just want to say please keep letting us in on the details of your life in recovery. The abstract notion may be intellectually comforting, but personal experience such as yours can be life saving.
Real life and real recovery, lived day by day, class by class, emotion by emotion. Thanks for being so willing to grow in public. It helps me alot.

"When you have the ability to look at your own
feelings, you no longer need to engage in
control maneuvers to protect your feelings."
Thanks Don, for welcoming me and letting me learn from your experience. A precious gift indeed.
