Staying clean

todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that my sponsees are really keeping me on my toes

for some meeting/discussion about the concept of fight or flight. I can somehow identify with this but have not yet given it the thought it deserves. Do you have some experience to share on this?

that I seem to stay so damn busy on any given day, even when I have no plans

for Step 3

If you judge people, you have no time to love them.

My fight or flight response is overdeveloped. I have thought a great deal about it.

This photo of a cat with all 4 limbs being tied up is painful - definitely not amusing! It reminds me of child abuse - regardless whether the cat was tolerating it or not. Why put it up?

Fight or flight. Is there a third option?

Before AA I always chose flight. It was the easier softer way, now I try to stay and work through what's coming my way. It's not always enjoyable, but I no longer have to worry about returning with my tail between my legs.....

I prefer not to fight. I have a saying about my choices: I can leave the field in a confrontation and that is okay. If I decide to stay and fight, then I had better be prepared to outcrazy the other person. That takes a tremendous amount of energy. And it seldom accomplishes anything.
