In my 20's I went to this aa meeting where there was this old guy speaking who told us a story about a man who died and went to heaven. He was waiting in line to get in the gates. When his turn came, he said he didn’t know if he was going to get in because he had been an alcoholic. St. Peter told him that he had already been to hell. I still think of that guy and what he said to this day...

In another meeting there was this girl who said that it was no wonder she was an alcoholic, because when she was little all she wanted to do was read books and eat candy all the time.
I still wonder what’s wrong with wanting to read books and eat candy all the time....

This year, I no longer respond to self important people, huge egos, delusional people, bossy people~ with my usual passiveness and acceptance of “my place.” And.....if you try to treat me other than an equal to you and you want something from me or something done, don’t expect it anytime soon. That is all. I am willing to deal with any consequences from this, including a healthier self esteem, less silly games, and not bowing down before “false images.
