AA Step 5 ~ Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongdoings.

Blurbdabdabda.

What?

The EXACT nature of my wrongdoings? What if I don’t know what they are – exactly? What if my list is really long? Like – who wants to listen to all of that? Wait. Do I even want to get into all that bologna? Seriously – what’s the point? How am I supposed to be present in my own life if I’m having to swim through all that muck in my mind? That could take a really long time.

What ifinstead – I just start doing my best – sober – and behaving in a way that I find respectful and can be proud of every night? What if I start being honest with myself, and others, and living in integrity? What if I 1st start treating MYSELF the way I want to be treated by other people? And then, 2nd, WHAT IF I start treating other people the way I start treating myself? With integrity and respect and patience and kindness …

How ’bout that?
