A Diagnosis and a Cure

by erics1100paces

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.
