I'm learning to stop being so hard on myself. I'm learning that pain is
mandatory and suffering is optional. I'm learning to listen to and respect
myself on a minute by minute basis. My day is filled with 10th step
inventories. I've learned that there is one person who will always be there
with me, like it or not. That person is me. I best take care of her in every
way so that our journey together is filled with love.
