Decisions Based On Self

🔥Decisions Based On Self

Ever wondered why your life sucks at times?…

Why it seems people are pissed with you?…

Ignoring you?…blaming you?…criticizing you?…

Not understanding you’re point of view…

No matter how hard you try with others, you cannot maintain harmonious relationships…

Here’s the thing…

Any course of action you take in life based on self, will at sometime come into conflict with those close to you…

Why is that?…

Any decision based on self will be a decision driven by either fear, self-delusion, self-seeking or self-pity…

We step on the toes of our fellows and they retaliate…

“Sometimes they hurt us, seemingly without provocation, but we invariably find that at some time in the past we have made decisions based on self which later placed us in a position to be hurt. So our troubles, we think, are basically of our own making. They arise out of ourselves”

  • The Big Book P62

Hence the need for regular inventory in order to identify when in the past we have made decisions based on self that have come back to bite us with those close to us.

A one-off step 4 inventory is not good enough…

The instructions in the Big Book are clear.
..

REGULAR inventory must be taken…

Its called the discipline of step 10…

Continued to take regular inventory and when wrong promptly admitted it…

The end of conflict in your life…

If you do it…

Are you doing it is the question???
