Monday, 8/7, Hope for Today, my rights as a person


This author speaks about how damaging growing up with alcoholism was, and how alanon has turned things around.  They learned many important things about the rights they are entitled to:

-the right to speak at a meeting without interruption or advice

-that anonymity would be respected

-that "no" is a complete sentence and one can refuse without explanation

-the value of the Serenity Prayer being applied to relationships

-we have the choice to do what's best for us as long as it's not hurting anyone else

-the right to set realistic goals and achieve them at my own pace

-success is irrelevant and failure can be an opportunity to grow

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I think this summary just about says it all, in telling me what program can do for us and what it has done for me.  Grateful member always.
