Keep It Simple #essentialsofrecovery

If you do not tell the truth about yourself, you cannot tell it about other people.

—Virginia Woolf

Working the Twelve Steps helps us learn the truth. As we struggle with Step Four, we learn the truth about ourselves. We learn even more about ourselves by doing Steps Eight and Ten. When we admit the truth about ourselves, things come into focus. Big changes happen.

As a result, we can see other people more clearly. We see bad sides in people we thought were prefect. We see good sides in people we hated. We start to know that everyone has to work hard to find what’s right for them. No one knows all the answers.

In short, we begin to trust others also who also are looking for the truth.

Prayer for the Day: Higher Power, help me clearly see myself and others.

Action for the Day: Today, I’ll think about how doing Step Ten keeps me clear about what’s going on in my life.
