The Power of Wrong

The Power of Wrong

“For the wise have always known that no one can make much of his life until self-searching becomes a regular habit, until he is able to admit and accept what he finds, and until he patiently and persistently tries to correct what is wrong.”
– Step 10 The 12 Steps and 12 Traditions

My greatest comfort comes in the realization of being wrong:

My mind would convince me that I should feel guilt and shame about my past…

I was wrong…

My past has become my greatest asset…

My mind would convince me that my future was riddled with calamity and situations that I should fear…

I was wrong…

Nothing has happened in my life that has been unsolvable, even my alcoholism.

My mind would convince me that others were wrong about me and that’s as far as I got…

I was wrong…

All those close to me ever wanted was for me to find my own truth by me finally discovering where I was wrong about them and about myself.

Wisdom can only be held by habitual self searching and admittance of the truth.

Paul
