FEBRUARY 1 Reflection for the Day
The longer I’m in the Gamblers Anonymous Program, the more clearly I see why it’s important for me to understand why I do what I do, and say what I say. In the process, I’m coming to realize what kind of person I really am. I see now, for example, that it’s far easier to be honest with other people than with myself. I’m learning also that we’re all hampered by our need to justify our actions and words.
Have I taken an inventory of myself as suggested in the Twelve Steps? Have I admitted my faults to myself and to another human being?
Today I Pray
May I not be stalled in my recovery process by the enormity of the Program’s Fourth Step – taking a moral and financial inventory of myself – or by admitting these shortcomings to myself and to another human being. May I know that honesty to myself about myself is all-important.
Today I Will Remember
I cannot mend if I bend the truth.
