[As a recovering alcoholic, addict or co-dependant] we constantly remind ourselves we are no longer running the show, humbly saying to ourselves many times each day -Thy will be done …
We are then in much less danger of;
- over excitement,
- self-pity, or
- foolish decisions.
We become much more efficient. We do not tire so easily, for we are not burning up energy foolishly as we did when we were trying to arrange life to suit ourselves.
