Showing humility is a big part of recovery. It is important to show it on a daily basis and to let go of all pride and ego. Humility is keeping an open mind and remaining willing to listen to and follow direction. It is definitely easier said than done but if you can master this, you will be successful in your journey of recovery. If you are unable to remain humble in the process of learning new things, you will eventually lose all peace and serenity. The act of obtaining a sponsor can be humbling as it can be difficult to put faith in one person to direct you down the path of recovery. Being a sponsor to somebody is also a humbling experience as being of service is important to maintaining sobriety. There is always somebody who needs help and there is always something new to learn.
