Endigar 129

Bill Wilson from the Grapevine, Jan 1958:

If we examine every disturbance we have, great or small, we will find at the root of it some unhealthy dependency and its consequent unhealthy demand.  Let us, with God’s help, continually surrender these hobbling liabilities.

Then we can be set free to live and love;  we may then be able to 12-step ourselves, as well as others, into emotional sobriety.

Should I interpret this to mean that my reaction concerning my sexuality is a hobbling liability?  It was definitely a source of being disturbed.  A dependency leading to a demand that is not good, it is unhealthy.  I cannot ever imagine me being able to become happily independent of my sexuality and living without my wonderfully dark demands.  It is the counter weight for the oowie goowie aspects of sobriety.  Maybe I will have a change of perspective.  I have before.
