Sober Pod - Step 7 - Shortcomings - Ellenisode!

Ellen starts off her minisode with a quote from the 12X12: “We saw we needn’t always be bludgeoned and beaten into humility. It could come quite as much from our voluntary reaching for it as it could from unremitting suffering. A great turning point in our lives came when we sought for humility as something we really wanted, rather than as something we must have. It marked the time when we could commence to see the full implication of Step Seven: “Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.” - and she shares her take on it.

Relating to recovery, he follows that train of thought. It’s deep. It’s relatable. And Steve reminds us that though we need to clean up our mess, we are not always a mess.
