MTG – Orlando – “Courage 2 Be Me Alateen AFG”

WHAT I LEARNED: Sometimes mispronounced words, makes me hear things differently – for example:

A) Step 1: We admitted we were powerless over alcohol – that our lives had become unimaginable.

B) Step 5: Admitted to God, to ourselves, & to another human being the abstract nature of our wrongs.

MTG – Ocoee – “Monday Miracles”

WHAT I LEARNED: if no one knows us as we really are, we run the risk of making ourselves victims of our own self-hatred.  If we can be loved by somebody who sees us as we are, we will then be able to accept ourselves.  Others rarely think we’re as bad as we think we are.”  from Alateen Hope For Children of Alcoholics (item # B-3), pages 17-18.
