I sometimes need a refresher in the subj statement. One of the founding principles of the program is about not letting my personality and will to run the show. I am often reminded that in order to keep what I have, I have to give it away. This means that I need to work with other people in recovery. This can really be a struggle for me as some of are really “nuts”. It’s impossible to like every single person in every single situation, but it doesn’t mean I have the right to treat them poorly. I always try to relate instead of judge.
