Doing What You’re Too Good For, Makes You Better
There are many tasks i used to think were beneath me. Things that needed doing that i was too good for.
Here’s what i learned. The more jobs i do that i feel are beneath me, the higher i raise myself up. The more tasks i accomplish that i am too good for, the better person i become.
Allow me to pass along some wisdom given me by my sponsor.One thing my sponsor told me when he was giving me the answers to all my problems was that a lot of my drinking was fear based. Much of that fear is the fear of rejection. i drank so i could overcome this fear.
The Cure to Fear of Rejection is Esteemable Acts.
An Esteemable Act is a Good Deed and they are cushions for the soul.
The more esteemable acts i do, the better i feel about myself. The better i feel about myself, the less a rejection will sting. Thus, the more Good Deeds i do, the less i will suffer from rejection.
Good deeds make you strong. Be Strong!
