“Prior to my coming into A.A., I knew of no place that could teach me how to become a person among persons.” – Daily Reflections
What grade do they teach us how to have healthy relationships with others? How to fit in to the world about us and feel comfortable? When do they give us the course on how to handle life’s ups and downs and cope with the feelings that result? The answer is never. Not in grade school, middle school, high school or college. So how is it that people figure it out? Some, I guess, are lucky and just get it. Others, like me, turned to ganja, booze and drugs to cope. It was only in the rooms of AA and Alanon that I was finally taught how to love life on life’s terms, to have healthy relationships and finally feel comfortable in my own skin. If only everyone else knew how much our programs and the fellowship we share have to offer them, the whole world would be sharing in our gratitude. Indeed, we are so very lucky. ILML!
