Rejection is God’s Protection

Home » Addiction » Rejection is God’s Protection

Rejection is an addict’s great fear. It removes all semblance of structure – it dismantles the emotional scaffolding that safeguards a person’s soul – banishing that man or woman to the temptations of drugs and alcohol; abandoning that individual to a long night of drunkenness, and an even longer descent into near-constant intoxication; poisoning that citizen with pills and powders, until the gravest worry ends at a gathering before an earthen grave for the latest victim of an overdose.

For those in recovery, myself included, rejection is a fact of life. How we deal with that pain, particularly for those who are artists (again, myself included), is critical to maintaining sobriety and good health.
