Dr. Low tells us that humor is our best friend and temper is our worst enemy when dealing with symptoms. With that in mind, I recently realized that some of Tina Turner’s famous song lyrics have some things in common with Recovery principles!
Dr. Low: It’s OK to be average.
Tina Turner: We don’t need another hero.
Dr. Low: It’s not how you feel, it’s how you function.
Tina Turner: What’s love got to do with it?
I doubt Tina Turner even knows what Recovery is all about, and this is admittedly a bit silly. But it’s a good reminder that when we find ourselves all tied up in anxious knots, a little humor can go a long way toward feeling better. The next time you feel down, think of Turner singing "Proud Mary"; you'll find it hard not to smile.
Any other Tina Turner sayings you can think of that are reflective of Recovery?
