Overcoming Denial

willingness_to_change

Admitting our wrongs to ourself can be the most difficult part of Step Five. Denial can be blinding!

How can we be expected to admit to ourself those things we are blind to? Here’s a clue that can help us. We will often condemn in others  the wrongs most deeply hidden within ourself.

It won’t be easy to be honest with ourself. “The human heart is the most deceitful of all things. We can look at those things we condemn in others as a clue to what may be lurking within ourself.

“Most men would rather deny a hard truth than face it.”
― George R.R. Martin
