We were entirely ready to have the Goddess remove all these defects of character
Are there parts of me I like, but which might be "defects?" Am I afraid I'll turn into someone I on't like if those parts of my character are removed? I've always gone against the grain, as mainstream culture disgusts me. I don't want to be normal. I don't want to be like everybody else.
What do I think will be removed? Perhaps the compulsion to use or eat constantly. My inability to maintain interpersonal relationships. Fear.
Do I still believe in the process of recovery? Do I believe that I can change? How have I changed so far? What defects do I no longer have to act out on? To be honest this "recovery" business within the lense of the twelve steps seems more and more like brainwashing, giving an ideal of what can save you and to hold onto it with all your might, making your faith unshakable in something as arbitrary as God. What happens when "God" lets you down? Blame yourself for being unable to hear Its message clearly enough? Self reprimand seems counterproductive. I'm willing to change to a certain degree, but only in a manner that is congruent with spiritual growth and better homeostasis. Coming this far I have found that I can be more and more honest with myself instead of justifying each act out of desperation for acceptance from others, myself and the Goddess. Like someone is watching me over my shoulder and secretly keeping count on how many times I fake feeling sick so that I can sleep in or the reasons behind my desire for a fix. I am becoming more and more okay with that. I can quell the fear of lack of communication as I seem to have surrounded myself with a group of people that are honest and easy going. They have no reason to lie to me. And I to them.
Do I have any defects that cannot be removed? What are they? Why do I think they cannot be removed? My abysmal self esteem. It's been battered and beaten my whole life and I'm not sure it can make a true comeback after it's been crippled for so long. I will always be insecure. I will always second guess myself. I will always wonder if what people say is really what they mean.
And on that note, titty sprikles.
I am the high you can't sustain (and I control you)
