    Agreed. I wrote that article some time ago, but I still hold the same view. My point is simply that we each have a part to play in the positive changes we desire. It’s kinda like what my mom used to say: “God helps those who help themselves.” Even in the NA literature it says God will not do everything for us. I can relate to how trying to change can sometimes backfire, but for me, the willingness and action to change is what counts the most.

    It also says,
    “In the Seventh Step, humility means understanding our role in our own recovery, appreciating our strengths and limitations, and having faith in a Power greater than ourselves.”* ~ IWHW, page 69

    Just because I “humbly ask” doesn’t eliminate my responsibility to do my part. The 7th step informs us that:

    “We have the freedom to choose to act constructively or, when appropriate, do nothing at all.”
