Get a Room
One of the reasons i feel so at home in AA is that the people in the rooms are genuine. They don’t pretend to be something they’re not. They don’t have any pretensions.
They have hit bottom, hard, many of them several times, and i know how stupid and horrible and shameful they have behaved. And they know i know. Because they know the same things about me.
Our artifices have been stripped away with alcohol and what is left us is a roomful of real, authentic, honest and genuine people sharing their experiences.
That’s one hell of a foundation for a beautiful fellowship.
