Successful recovery will not occur without a strong accountability relationship. Finding the right partner can be difficult and sometimes “firing” the wrong fit is a necessary step toward health. In my recent XXXChurch article, I shared “5 Reasons to Fire Your Accountability Partner“. It is my hope that those in recovery will find this guide helpful in improving their accountability experience and learning to connect with others.
As I shared in the article, “I have discovered in my own life that having an accountability partner who takes my struggles seriously, invests time and attention, speaks the truth in love, strengthens me without shaming me, and cares for my past and current wounds is both transformational and life-giving.” May all those who seek serious recovery find the right fit too.
