I try to work the Program to the best of my ability, and being of service to others has certainly been helpful in bringing a little humility into my life. Peace and serenity are mine through prayer and meditation. I have learned to set boundaries with others and no longer tolerate poor behavior towards me. I can speak up when needed, and quite often do. In recovery I have learned to love myself and others. Today, I treat me as well as I treat others – after all I am no more and no less deserving of love, deserving of respect and deserving of a better life – God has gifted me.
