Im a little confused about the Values list.

Are we making a list of things we value, good and bad? Or are we making a list of all the good values that back up our ideal vision? I've read the exercises over and over to see if I'm missing something, but it still doesn't make any sense.

One other thing, is a "practical value" basically the same thing as an action or goal? Maybe I have a different definition for the word "value" and thats why its not making sense.

yes
both and more
list the values that you have and want to live by
the values that you wish to have
and the values that you wish to rid yourself of
in addiction we generally live our lives based on emotions
we need to change that way of thinking and acting and use values instead
it takes time and practice but writing these down opening ourselves to who we are and who we want to be is the starting point

pretty much yes

a good example is
I value freedom (Universal)
I take three hours each week to enjoy my freedom (Practical)



Values: What are They?

Quote:
Your values are those principles in your life that you use to derive meaning and fulfilment. They form the foundation of your identity
.





the key is

Quote:
For many though, values are perceived as idealistic concepts without any real practical value in helping them to manage their day-to-day life. This mindset needs to change

.



Quote:
In a healthy person, values provide the motivation that drives their behavior. They are the impetus for decision-making and provide a stable foundation for feelings and emotions.



remember we as addicts are not healthy, RN helps and guides us towards change
