There’s 12 steps to breaking an addiction to alcohol. Number one being:
- We admitted we were powerless over alcohol—that our lives had become unmanageable.
In order to rectify our problems we first have to acknowledge their presence. A few lessons these past few days have taught me that. First a talk from an eating disorder consultant (I think that’s how it’s said) which was if anything, depressing. But something came out of it, when asking friends about the whole anorexia thing (or suicide or being homosexual) it’s better to just address it rather than skirt around the topic hoping not to tread on too many toes. Apparently that’s not what to do, take it head on. Admit the failings, name it and be aware.
People are too quick to criticize others and too slow to realise their own failings. Hypocrisy is something I’ve oft fallen prey to, I’ll do things that I criticize other for doing, just justifying it so I fall into the right.
I’ll finish it here. An incredibly short post today but I feel like it’s not something that really need to be elaborated on, just be ready to admit your mistakes in life – you’ll be better off for it.
