Empathy in Recovery

Good afternoon! My name is Lauren, and I’m a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. There have been times in my life where I just wish someone would understand me, or understand where I was coming from. But then when the tables were turned I didn’t want to give someone the time of day or understand their point of view. That’s me being selfish again. Another of my faults. 

I just wish everyone could understand ME, it’s all about ME! But why should I give you the same courtesy? Doesn’t make sense does it. Often we humans think the world revolves around us, often at the level of our subconscious.

We should be self-less and caring about others. I need to stop worrying about me so much, and listen to others, try to be more understanding, and caring towards others. I need to realize and understand that I am here to care and share, not hurt and degrade. That’s all I have for today.
