Tolerance

.

“Honesty with ourselves

and others

gets us sober,

but it is tolerance

that keeps us that way.”

.

As Bill Sees It p 312

.

What is it about us

that we always want to judge others.

My sponsor said, “If you spot it, you’ve got it.”

To some degree is is good to look at others,

but do not judge, just use the evaluation

to look at yourself and see what character

defects you may need to be working to correct.

Tolerate others, tolerate yourself, as long as everyone

is working to do the next right thing

we can all keep each other sober.

Recovery is honesty and tolerance.

Sobriety is a blessing form a Higher Power.

“Character defects

like gossip

sneak into my life

when I am not making

a constant effort

to work the Twelve Steps

of recovery.”

.

Daily Reflections, p.297

.

The character defect of the drunk

was to talk about other people ( true or false)

so that I would not have to look at myself.

If you spot it, you’ve got it.

Too often what we despise in others

is what we despise in ourselves.

Today, don’t lose your serenity,

when you sense that something is not right,

don’t blame anyone but yourself.

Today, find the Step that will put you

back on a good spiritual foundation and

keep your own side of the street clean.

Recovery is one day at a time.

Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.

And, if no one has told you yet today,

God loves you and so do we.
