Alanon Step 8 quote, from "The Twelve Steps".


  I highlighted this some years ago. Copyright Alanon, 1981.

Page 51.

The armoury of personal improvements gave us the strength we needed to make amends, not only to the living, but to the departed, by being kind to others and forgiving of ourselves.

The wisdom and confidence we gained from the study of Alanon principles helped us to avoid repeating past mistakes. This, in itself, was a kind of amending for past wrongs.

Sitting here, Saturday morning- and writing this down- brings wet warm tears to my eyes. Tears of gratitude. Years of grateful relief.

I still have a way to go- and this motivation sustains me.

 aww Thanks. 


Participation is the key to harmony.
