“Everyone is a prisoner of his or her own experiences. No one can eliminate prejudices— just recognize them.”
~ Edward R. Murrow
In recovery, I am accepting that I am not perfect. Some Prejudices are part of my life—what it is to be human. On a daily basis, I am trying to deal with prejudice, and talking about it helps. Judgment does not go away just because I talk about it, but I do get a better perspective and grow in an understanding of myself through the recognition of my prejudices.
Alcoholism made me a fake: I appeared to be what I was not, and my prejudices were part of the camouflage. My prejudices revealed my fears and my need to people- please. Slowly, in my daily spiritual program, I am discovering the courage to stand alone.
Teach me to love truth more than popularity.
