CAL – Item # P-73 – Alateen Talks Back on: Detachment

Leave a comment

P-73WHAT I LEARNED: 1. This booklet came out in 1995 is the 6th (& last) one in the Alateen Talks Back series.  Originally planned as a 9-part series, the 6th piece was supposed to be about the 12 Steps & Traditions but the material eventually ended up in the larger book, Courage to Be Me (item # B-23).  The other booklets that never came to be were: Alateen Talks Back on: Tough Stuff (which dealt with difficult situations i.e. death, divorce, suicide, & abuse) & Alateen Talks Back on: Younger Members (which was added as an extra page insert in the regular Alateen Talk newsletter).

2. What I got out of this booklet is that Detachment = Focusing On Myself.  My two favorite lines are:

PinkFrom page 9: “Detachment is not caring less, it’s caring more for my own serenity.”

From page 16: “[Detachment] helps me to be me, & not become what others want me to be.”
