Knowing ourselves

Recovery is about getting to know ourselves, who we are and what we want.  This is not to say that we become selfish and self-centered, thinking only about our own needs and wants.  Instead it is about taking care of ourselves, doing what is best for ourselves, and sometimes that may mean looking after and taking care of someone else.  However, we need to do what is best for us not what will bring the most praise.

I don’t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.
