Trying To Be All Things To All People?

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW presents:
Entitled to Overcome (Solutions for Life Today)
with Dave Fleming & the Monty’man

ABOUT THIS SHOW: Sometimes our lives get so busy and so filled with the expectations of others that we attempt to meet everyone’s needs. In recovery, we may say yes to every service position that comes available. In doing this we may become somewhat of a Chameleon specializing in adapting to whatever situation we are in and losing our true self in the attempt to be all things to all people. When this happens, burn out is sure to follow and we can run the risk of relapse. Our recovery fellowships just as our families are filled with unique and different folks. It is easy to become a different person when we walk into our Twelve Step meetings and an entirely different man or women once we arrive back home, our workplace or our social network. Are we trying to fit in everywhere at all times and juggle everything to please others or fulfill the unreasonable expectations we have put on ourselves?

CLOSING SONG:
Crossroads by Robert Leroy Johnson.
Performed by Kelly Z. of Kelly’s Lot www.kellyslot.com

Pain and Anguish

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW

About the Show:

It has been said that in life pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional, but is it? The truth is, we sometimes give these pat answers and comments without considering what a person’s pain and anguish has been like. In this episode of the Take 12 Recovery Radio show we will be discussing the difference between pain and anguish and share some of our experience with both.

Closing Song: Keep Coming Back by Sam Allen of Sonship http://www.sonship.band

Sticks and Stones

THE TAKE 12 RECOVERY RADIO SHOW

Topic: Sticks & Stones, the Profanity, and the Profane.

‘Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me’ is a stock response to verbal bullying in school playgrounds throughout the English-speaking world. It sounds a little antiquated these days and has no doubt been superseded by more streetwise comebacks. A response to an insult, implying that “You might be able to hurt me by physical force but not by insults”. But as men and women in recovery we know this to be anything but true. Word’s are powerful, they hurt, traumatize and can even lead to death. The profanity and the profane simply do us no good. ​ Closing Song: Sunny Day by Tom Storms www.tomstormsproductions.com

ELECTION DISTRACTION

As people in recovery we can not afford to allow worldly clamors to distract us from our relationship with God, ourselves and our families. One such clamor is the distraction of this year’s election, debates and the horrible way in which many people who claim to love God end up treating each other because of differences in political persuasion. On today’s show we ask the question: Where is our trust; Is it in God or man? Do we filter our politics and government through our faith in God or do we filter God through our politics and government? We will not tell you how to vote, nor will we disclose who we are voting for but these questions must be addressed.

I DON’T LIKE YOU

Have you ever met someone who just didn’t like you and you didn’t know why? Perhaps you can think of people you don’t like and you may or may not be able to put your finger on the reason. Are there people in recovery, church or work that just drive you crazy and you hate running into them? Join Toni, Bruce and the Monty’man as they ask the question, “Is it alright to not like someone, does there have to be a reason and what is the solution? Who is the real enemy? Closing song: “My Jesus” by Todd Agnew
