12 Steps: I would like to find a PA *sponsor*
My situation is a bit challenging for me at the moment. And I'm feeling discouraged after initally making progress in my other 12-step program with many of the inter-connected issues I struggle with, including problems with distraction/avoidance . I thought I'd found someone to sponsor me in that program, but it turned out the person still had some really big unresolved issues and was kind of in denial about it :sad: and the situation wasn't as supportive as at first I imagined. So I cut off that contact, but am now missing knowing that I had someone to talk with about the specifics of my situation.
I have also come to realize that perhaps the most insidious of my issues, and underlying the others, is this problem of not being clear about priorities and distracting myself from focusing on important things. It does seem that if I approach this problem successfully, the other issues fall into place.
Given that our forum here is not the best place to discuss very specific details - nor is the potential chat meeting, I'm feeling I could really benefit by having a sponsor, or someone who wants to concurrently work on the steps with me, to include more or less daily (or every few days?) phone calls (I use Skype so no issue for me with calling rates in the US or Canada) or email correspondence? I'm certainly willing to offer the same kind of support to someone to the best of my ability. It's not that I dont' know what to do or how to proceed, but sometimes that clarity gets 'lost' when it only exists in my own personal reality without any external support. I can't afford therapy or a coach right now; I actually perfer peer support anyways.
Please let me know if you are interested!
