Step 2 -EA

ML here....powerless over my emotions.......

quotes from EA book titled "It Works If You Work It":

(pg 34 - 35) ...."But we soon realize that on our own we had not be able to solve our problems; willpower and resolve had not changed our negative behaviors and attitudes. We see that our lives had been gradually consumed by anxieties and fears and that we could no longer face the everyday frustrations and challenges that are part of our existence. This, too, is a new level of self-honesty and our first step up the ladder to serenity.(Step one = honesty)

As we embark on Step Two, Came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity, we begin to be optimistic that the simple act of "coming to believe" offers us hope for improved emotional health. If we have been reviewing the literature and reflecting on the steps, when we come into the meeting our eyes are opened to others in the group. We begin to hear their stories of hope, and take them to heart as possible for ourselves."

To be continued......
