my AA sponsor always says to me, "get over yourself and go help someone else."sound horrible? BUT it works. He tells me that by disrespecting myself i am thoroughly disrespecting God, who made me just as i am supposed to be. so that i can be a productive and useful member of society.He tells me i don't have the luxury of self-pity or feeling sorry for myself because that feeds my disorder AND keeps me from God's primary purpose for me -- being useful in the world.He tells me that the hours i spend feeling sorry for myself, are hours spent squandering the time i could be spending being useful in the world.Sounds horrible, right? but i swear, this kind of thinking is the only kind that ever helped me.who knew?by the way, congratulations on your wonderful job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
