It details how I grew spiritually through living The Twelve Steps. The book also focuses on how I learned personal responsibility and reliance for others - not on them - even God.Therapy is a wonderful thing, but it can only go so far. After getting difficulties off my chest, I found that my arms were full- so what did I do with this stuff? I took them to someone who is experienced in The Steps- a sponsor. We went through each article deciding whether I needed it now or place it in a box labeled ‘The Past’- I put the box on a shelf knowing where these encumbrances are but not being continually weighed down by them.Similarly, I made a list of people I had burdened in my past. I went about, with my sponsor, outlining how I might or could (or should) acknowledge and alleviate my transgressions.Read this book of your own volition, at your own risk. Read it if you want to.
