“Know Thyself” One Day at a Time in Alanon..........

“Know Thyself”
One Day at a Time in Alanon
June 18

The Greek philosopher Socrates said:  “Know thyself.” We are to see ourselves as we really are-our characters, motives, attitudes and actions.

A deeply rooted habit of self-justification may tempt me to explain away each fault as I uncover it.  Will I blame others for what I do on the ground that I am compelled to react to their wrongdoing?

It has been said that even a trained psychiatrist cannot analyze himself because of such blocks.  This will challenge me to prove that personal honesty and humility can achieve what superior knowledge often cannot.

Today’s Reminder

“Perfection is a long way off, but improvement can be made to happen every day.”
