THE EASIER, SOFTER WAY
MAY 15, 2012
If we skip this vital step, we may not overcome drinking. Alcoholics Anonymous, p. 72
Humility sounds so much like humiliation, but it really is the ability to look at myself-and honestly accept what I find. I no longer need to be the “smartest” or “dumbest” or any other “est.” Finally,it is okay to be me. It is easier for me to accept myself if I share my whole life. If I cannot share in meetings, then I had better have a sponsor -someone with whom I can share those “certain facts” that could lead me back to a drunk, to death. I need to take all the Steps. I need the Fifth Step to learn true humility. Easier methods do not work.
