What Story Are You Telling?

How Much Truth? Too Little, Too Much, or Just Right?
Getting to a point in our recovery, which requires rigorous honesty is frightening. As I look back on my own experiences, a thorough assessment had to be conducted. In recovery, we are asked to look closely within and even far into our past to find the exact nature of the behaviors and activities we chose to engage in, and some people are hesitant, falsely believing that the inventory is only about identifying actions that fill them with shame and guilt. As a result, many want to bury the past experiences and begin the new journey from a starting point of their choosing, not from the place where they are building their foundation.
