I have learned that when the pain of where I am is worse than the fear of where I’m going, I welcome change. ~Voices of Recovery (Kindle Locations 2483-2484). Overeaters Anonymous.
Step Six declares we “Were entirely ready
to have God remove
all these defects of character.”
Our traits we once identified as our nature
once served a purpose, made us who we were.
They are as comfortable to us
as the foods and eating behaviors
that pulled us yo Recovery.
But we got uncomfortable enough with the food,
we can do the same with other traits, and like the food,
we’ll learn the comfort comes when we change those as well
and for comfort, less fear, we’ll be entirely ready!
