Endigar 527 ~ Lightening the Burden

From Today’s Daily Reflections;

Showing others who suffer how we were given help is the very thing which makes life seem so worth while to us now. . . . the dark past is . . . the key to life and happiness for others.   (Alcoholics Anonymous, page 124)

Since I have been sober, I have been healed of many pains: deceiving my partner, deserting my best friend, and spoiling my mother’s hopes for my life. In each case someone in the program told me of a similar problem, and I was able to share what happened to me. When my story was told, both of us got up with lighter hearts.




I am exiled.  I am a disappointment.  I am a fake.  I am pathetic.  I am not understood.  My morbid self reflection was a crushing burden.

Yes you were, but so what.  So were we.  We took action and let the grungy past become events rather than a lifestyle.  We are a Fellowship.  We care.  We are genuine.  We are courageous.  Let it go and live.  We did, so can you.
