I have decided, however, to ask myself, “What’s the one thing I really don’t want to talk about?” I use that question as a tool to hone in on the thing I want to keep as a secret because it tells me where my sickness is. That is what I share about. ~ ACA WSO., INC Adult Children of Alcoholics/Dysfunctional Families. ACA WSO INC., Kindle Edition.
Recovery groups are a place for honesty,
a place to learn, to grow in program.
While I’m not an Adult Child from
a dysfunctional family, I belong
in the Rooms of Recovery!
Rather than choosing an issue
we’re working through and discussing it,
we read from Program Literature,
often commenting how the section
we read, the portion after the last read
is precisely what we needed to hear.
We comment about the ideas,
their meaning to us personally.
Telling our secrets because it tells us
where our sickness is…
That is what we need to share,
the place appropriate for our own Recovery.
