When we are truly working an honest program of recovery...the promises are real!! "No more shame, be proud of who you are."There is nothing to be ashamed of any longer. The internal moral compass becomes balanced. We no longer hurt ourselves or others. "Choose well to live well"
How you treat people shows your true self and character. I may not be the most educated person and I KNOW I'm far from "cool", especially in the minds of Hunter and Blake ;-) But what I am proud of most about myself is not having it in me to be judgmental, cold, uncaring, and cruel with my words and actions. Especially toward people I don't know. I form MY OWN opinion about others. I don't let anyone or anything (like alcohol and anger) influence my feelings or thoughts about others.
