HUMILITY-RECOVERY WORD OF THE WEEK

SOUTH ORANGE COUNTY DETOX & TREATMENT-949-584-5927

Humility, for me, can be difficult to practice at times especially when first getting clean or when having to listen to someone talk whom I’m not very fond of.  I’ve come to understand and adopt, somewhat easily, the humbleness and selflessness that it takes to help others. Even when I’m not in the best state of mind, being there for others helps me reconnect with the progress I’ve made due to the help and support I received at the beginning of my journey in recovery. When I help another addict or alcoholic I like to explain to them that I am not above or better than them but equal, in hopes to change their outlook or perspective they may have on the situation, to strengthen and offer hope. We all have strengths and weaknesses and taking action to finding the balance in life is my idea of being humble.
