With the ways of the world today and more people staying home to continue flattening the curve, “connection” has become a buzz word. The way people connect today is very different because of the pandemic that has pushed social distancing into the new norm. As we think more about it, we have begun to ponder whether the opposite of connection is addiction. When someone suffers from an addiction, they lose contact with their family, their coworkers, their friends, and, most importantly, themselves. A connection must ensue in recovery to withstand addiction, and then everything else will follow.

Connection Is Key

You may think you can live without connection. Still, the truth is that connection is necessary for humans, who are social beings by nature. Regardless if you are an introvert or an extrovert, you still need recovery relationships to bless your life. You were not meant to go through recovery alone. Find some people you relate to and then get to know them better. Your recovery will flourish being around others who understand your drift.

Connection Is Inspiring

If you only went off of everything you already knew, you would never be inspired by others. Authentic expression from others can get you motivated, especially regarding people in recovery. Allowing yourself to be closed-minded will not be beneficial for your sobriety. You need to hear how others got sober to become inspired to follow suit.

Connection Is Liberating

Plain and simple, you have to let your feelings, emotions, and fears out with another person regularly, or you will continue to suppress negativity. Talking about what you are going through with a sponsor or sharing in a meeting can be cathartic. Releasing all the baggage that has been holding you down will be a liberating experience if you let it all go.

You need to be in the middle of recovery to remain sober. Isolation and addiction can be a death wish if you allow them to rule your life. Ensure that you are attending online recovery meetings, talking to your sponsor, or connecting with your loved ones, so you are not going through anything alone. Recovery can prepare you for anything, including a pandemic. With a recovery program, you can stay connected and be better for it in the long run.
