In Courage to Change on page 90, I believe I heard these words read at a meeting, last night. "As I become more fully myself, I am better able to help others."
One member shared something that resonated with my feelings:
"When there is an emptiness or a hole inside me, I tend to want others to fill it for me.
If I go out and do for someone else, what I need, instead, I actually feel better. What I want for myself, I create for others, by participating with God." She shared,
"I need to give exactly what I am asking for."
Yikes. I admit, today I find this daunting. How do you work over this hump?
