A Diagnosis and a Cure
I heard a couple of things in the meeting tonight. First, someone described himself as “an egomaniac with an inferiority complex.”
That’s me in a nutshell. Earlier, I had emailed my sponsor and asked him why I was such an asshole. That’s why. I feel compelled to prove myself superior to others. Then I feel terrible, because all I really want is for them to like me.
The guy who led the meeting, however, pointed to a solution when he said, “after I completed the 6th and 7th steps I stopped being such an asshole.”
I need to hurry up and get through steps 2-5.
