Being a Martyr is NOT Spiritual
Self Pity is NOT Spiritual
Why can we say that?
Chapter 9. THE FAMILY AFTERWARD
We are SURE
God wants us to be happy, joyous, and free.
Does being a martyr sound happy joyous and free? (for you)
Well then, it mustn't be God's Will! (for you)
- An Irish Friend of Bill
- I have recovered from the disease of Alcoholism. I believe there is only one person really,.. everybody. And that peace of mind is everything. -So treat your neighbor as you would treat yourself, because your neighbor IS yourself. I think most of recovery is what I would call common sense, but that learning to be ordinary is a true gift very few people acquire. My ambition is to accept everything unflinchingly, with compassion, and therefore be intrinsically comfortable in my own skin, no matter what. I am comfortable being uncomfortable and am willing to go to any lengths to improve my life. I believe the Big Book was divinely inspired, and is extraordinarily powerful. Unfortunately AA's best kept secret a lot of the time. (In my opinion). I just try to do what works, no matter what it is.
