Monday, 4/27/09 - "MAKING A DIFFERENCE"


"MAKING A DIFFERENCE"

Thank you so much, Mile 191, for this wonderful award. You make a difference in my life. I care what happens to you, what you think and feel, and that you credit "moi" - 'little ole me' - with making a difference in your life.

So many of us in the recovery community have struggled with feelings of low self-esteem which include not feeling good enough, not measuring up, and can not imagine actually making a difference to anyone. It has been my own experience and watching others change that all those negatives turn around with the working of the twelve steps and time.

So many of us start out as egomaniacs with inferiority complexes. My inferiority complex was larger than my egomania and as I changed with the Alcoholics Anonymous and then the Al-Anon programs I came to
believe that I do make a difference in the lives of others.

There are those who overcompensate for their low self-esteem more in the other direction and are egomaniacs running around with heads as big as gigantic helium balloons. When those type individuals improve by working the twelve steps, their egos become deflated and they are then able to appreciate that others make a difference in their lives.

LET'S ALL KEEP BLOGGING AND
MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN EACH OTHERS LIVES.

I write to response to the message that "LET'S ALL KEEP BLOGGING AND
MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN EACH OTHERS LIVES" is loud and clear. I gave my support to you.

To me, the heart is more important than anything. Follow our hearts, which set free and make us conquerors - fear of nothing.

Thank for your kind reminder and we love you.

Grace and peace to you.
