Awakening Tip #8: Rigorous Honesty
I want to share a pivotal moment in my life with you.
When I went to treatment for the first time on July 26th, 1989, my counselor took one look at me and immediately recognized something.
She saw without a doubt that I was skilled in manipulation and charm, and more importantly that I was addicted to approval.
She also recognized that I was hurt, that I needed help, and that I needed love and kindness.
My counselor was the first one to teach me a lesson that would be the cornerstone of change in my life.
Without it, change simply would not have happened.
