A great read for those interested in personal life recovery. So many benefits. Want big change, why wait. Help is here!!True-To-Myself-Aware-Of-Others Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got. —Janis JoplinWhen we don’t know who we are, it’s easy to compromise ourselves. When we don’t know where we stand on an issue, it’s easy to be swayed by a forceful voice. Values may be cloudy in our minds, or we may not be aware of them at all. It’s then that we are vulnerable to the persuasion of another. In this recovery program, we are offered the way to know ourselves. We are supported in our efforts, and we realize we have friends who don’t want us to compromise ourselves – who value our struggle to know and to be true to ourselves.One of recovery’s greatest gifts is discovering we can make decisions that represent us, our inner selves, and those decisions please us. We all are familiar with the tiny tug of shame that locates itself in our solar plexus. When we “go along,” when we “give in” on a personally important issue, we pay a consequence. We lose a bit of ourselves. Over the years we’ve lost many bits. We have a choice, however.I will have a chance, soon, to act according to my wishes. I will take it.
