Our truth can change, that doesn't mean we were wrong. It was our truth in the moment and it often take a sponsor to point things out to us or to bring us around to a place where we can see things from a new perspective. We can't know what we haven't been taught or we can't know what we can't see and aren't aware of.

Like a lot of people, I was like an ostrich with my head buried in the sand or stuck in where it didn't belong. I had a long neck and a big beak that wanted to be in the know and wanted to know how it was done. I didn't know that one way didn't work for everyone. I had to let go of "My way or the highway ideas" and I had to learn to open other ideas than my own because my best thinking got me to the doors of recovery.

I found myself reflected in the faces and in the actions of the people in the rooms of recovery. They were my mirrors. They showed me who I was. I found myself there and for that, I will always be grateful.
