“I learned to appreciate and love myself and have lost over 35 pounds since completing the step process.”
So much of the garbage I had held in my body had become a part of my daily life, and as a result I was sick to my stomach most of the time. Some things caused emotional dependency and grief. Because I allowed myself to be responsible for taking care of family problems and matters I was always stressed out. I was out of control with others depending on me.
I also had an addiction to food. I used food to make me feel good about myself. Rather than go to bed and get a good night’s sleep, I would eat to keep myself awake until I was so exhausted I would fall asleep sitting in a chair. Sometimes I was so tired in the daytime I would not be able to keep my eyes open during meetings and when driving the car would want to close my eyes for a second…. I did close my eyes at red lights, and God was always with me, as I never caused an accident.
I was very fortunate to have Dr. Brown take me through her complete step process. I found the instructions and material in the book simple to read, follow, and understand. My work was completed by spending about 20 minutes per day over three months. Doing all the work opened the door to my thoughts as if a bolt of lightning had hit me.
I now look at “helping” as a disease which harms relationships. Through The Brown Method, I have finally learned the necessity of minding my own business and to do only those items which are on my plate. I learned to appreciate and love myself and have lost over 35 pounds since completing the step process. I am happy and content with myself and my life as it is today. I no longer see things through my brain — I now see all through my mind.
Probably for about 20 years I had thought about adding a room to my home for meditation purposes. At that time I thought I should not consider that kind of spending on a project I so desired. I am happy to say that I now have a beautiful meditation room where it is quiet and peaceful.
No more frustration and resentment. I thank God every day for the life which has been given to me.
