We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it

I'm still taking my personal inventory, I just have to walk away from it sometimes and return later to not drink, cry, or do something worse to myself!
MK , early in recovery when people said it will get better I thought when??
They said miracles will happen I thought bullshit.
But I knew I had to just keep trying, listening, waiting and getting back up when I got knocked back by life and facing the wreckage of my past.
It hurts a bit to admit our mistakes and misdeeds. Like tearing off a bandage. But pain goes away.
And life will get better. Ask anyone here or at a meeting,
I will think of you in my evening talk wi my HP.
Stay strong you are loved.
Thanks Dave, I'm starting to do better, my 1 year is just a few weeks away and with all the hard work it has taken to get here, I will not let it go to waste! I have increased the number of meetings I go to and picked up another sponsor!
I don't always know when I am wrong! I do talk to my sponsor or trusted servant/friend to help me look at my part. As long as I focus on myself instead of others, I am okay. I am able to laugh at myself more & hardly notice when I mess up. I didn't even know I was scared or hiding. I suit up & show up; I don't drink today & remember ' minding my own business ' is an all day job.
Step 10 is an important part of living sober.
I just read Chapter 5, Working With Others. It helped me very much. It reminds me to focus on changes I am making. It is a great read! Very practical! I need to keep reading the big book & keep practicing these principles in all my affairs; every day life.
If we want to be free we need to own our mistakes and make proper amends . This process allows to stand tall and be free of burden of our past .
Take a look at page 419 in BB.... the idea of changing the lenses in our glasses helps with our new prospective
