Alcoholics Anonymous | May 17 | DonInLondon | Step 5 "Share Your Truth"

May 17 2013: step five in mind… "We try to live by these principles: open, honest and willing to tell the truth now…" The hard evidence of step four, shared and declared in step five, opens the floodgates to a new way of living. And yet… What about the rest of the world? We are going to be surprised by the honesty of some, and the dishonesty of others. Whether people are honest or dishonest, our principles, open honest and willing are a rule of thumb for ourselves and not necessarily to judge other people. We are imperfectly perfect, we can let ourselves down, we can let other people down because we just do. If we can be forgiving of ourselves, we need to be as forgiving of other people for their misdeeds, and the misunderstandings that happen in normal life… Forgive everyone everything, or that gnawing incident where we do not forgive, will always be there, haunting and taking away our peace of mind…
