Here's a story I call "The Garbage Can Dilemma" that illustrates how deeply we internalize black and white thinking and what it looks like to come out of it.
Two stories about garbage cans are profiled to show how our thinking becomes much less rigid as we continue our journey of recovery. These stories also illustrate how recovery shows us how frequently we put up with things that annoy the f**k out of us when we don't have to.
We GET TO have choices in our lives as a result of recovery - choices about the kinds of garbage cans we have, what kind of socks we wear, and everything else. We don't have to think rigidly, and we don't have to put up with stuff that annoys us day in and day out.
