Daily Contemplation

Most of us have struggled with our self-esteem. We believed if we felt better about ourselves we could change some of our behavior. In recovery we found the reverse to be true. First our behavior changed, then our self-esteem improved. Only after we stop doing things we don't respect can we hear and accept the goodwill of others around us. Then we see our value because we are upholding strong self-images by our actions. This is not easy to do. As we learn, we continue to say no to weak behaviors, and we are released to feel greater dignity. Saying no to my negative behavior today will improve my self-respect
