    Fears started strong as well, but I’m glad I stopped at about 40 fears as opposed to 300 resentments. I could have gone on, but….do I really have to list every jerk that cut me off in traffic????. I just listed, Traffic jerks, flip off jerks, slow driver jerks, Escalade jerks, etc. I don’t have time to do a census.

    I know what you mean. When I first started thinking about resentments, I was like “I’m not really resentful at anybody…”…then I started writing. Good CHRIST! It was like cooking popcorn…nothing at first, then “POP”…a resentment…then nothing…then “POP”…another resentment…”POP-POP”…there’s two more…then…”POP-POP-POP-POP-POP-POP-POP-POP-POP-POP-POP”…….

    I can’t keep up!!!

    a LOT of them point back to me, too.


    My sponsor always tells me that we don’t develop new “character defects” once we get into recovery either b/c I’m always saying “was I always like this and just didn’t notice it”?

    Who the F was I before? (yikes!)

    I also noticed that once I got to step 5 and I actually told someone else…well, most of it just seemed really silly and petty. I felt pretty small…

    Progress is great Zube! Keep it up.

    Side by side we go 🙂
