"When you stop treating yourself like an ass, those around you
will stop." - Ken C.


BE A FRIEND TO YOURSELF
When I was forced to stop using drugs, one truth became very
apparent; I hated the person I had become. I stopped caring about
others quite a while back. I felt less than human. My only
friend, drugs, was taken away from me. I was left with somebody I
hated, myself. All my bridges were burned. I could not even look
in the mirror without disgust. I showed up overwhelmed with guilt
and self- pity. It amazed me that I could even muster up the
energy to show up at a meeting. It seemed odd to me that anybody
could care for a person like me. I could not like myself, let
alone love myself. I was told it was empathy. Nobody felt sorry
for me, but they knew how I felt, because they once felt like me.
I heard somebody say, "be a friend to yourself". It was a slow
process, building up some self-esteem. Simple daily tasks
improved how I was feeling, eventually letting me see that the
fellowship loved me when I was incapable of loving myself. The
first friend I needed to find was me.

"The longest journey of any person is the journey inward." - Dag
