When I was younger I was driven by “what will people think?”  The only time I could truely be me was when I was loaded up on booze and pills – which became a huge problemo in itself.  On March 21, 1984 I had a life changing experience, which is ironic, since it was cancer diagnosis.  Since then, it has been a journey, some good – some bad.  What I have come to realize are these few things:

  • What other people think is none of my business.  If they think I’m great, my ego gets out there.  If they think I’m not, I feel bad.
  • When I do what is right, I feel good about myself.
  • I want my family and friends to know how very much I love them….especially my kids/grandkids/great grandkids.
  • If you don’t like me – you lose.
  • If you have a problem with any of this – it is your problem, not mine.

    Good morning!
    My name is shirley and I am an alcoholic and I came across this page while searching for the Midland Texas conference. I think my Sponsor Polly P. and/or her husband recently spoke there. Might you know them as they are from that area?
    I am enjoying your site and will bookmark it so I can go back to it.
    I live just outside Memphis, Tn. in Horn Lake, Ms. Our meetings here are great and I enjoy attending meetings all over the country.
    Thank you for all you are doing,

    If I didn’t know better, I’d say that you’re a whiny hypocrite. And here are how:

    1. You bitched about people hating you.

    2. You claimed that people who hate you lose when you sound like a loser to me.

    You know? Nobody has to like you if he or she doesn’t want to. Do you honestly think that everyone has to like you? If so, then you’re sadly mistaken.

    And if someone who isn’t you antagonizes you ’cause she or her hates you but you get back at him or her, then you’re the real loser ’cause you allowed her or him to get to you.
