Do I Need Change

Do I Need Change



The world is a looking glass and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. ~William Makepeace Thackeray~

We’ve all heard it said a thousand different ways…"what goes around, comes around"…"you reap what you sow"…"you have to give to get", etc., etc.  It is a universal principle that life returns to us, only what we have been willing to give.  If you truly desire change in your life, and aren’t satisfied with what you have or how others treat you, quite possibly, the first place to look, is in the mirror! 🙂

Thought for the day

If life does indeed return to me only what I give, am I in trouble?  If necessary do I have the resolve to change me with God’s help and my sponsor’s help?  Do I really believe that I can change through working the steps?  Have I seen miracles happen in SAA rooms and am I willing to be open minded and faithful that the same can come true for me?


And as you would like and desire that men would do to you, do exactly so to them.  Love your enemies and be kind and do good [doing favors so that someone derives benefit from them] and lend, expecting and hoping for nothing in return but considering nothing as lost and despairing of no one; and then your recompense (your reward) will be great (rich, strong, intense and abundant), and you will be sons of the Most High, for He is kind and charitable and good to the ungrateful and the selfish and the wicked.  So be merciful (sympathetic, tender, responsive, and compassionate) even as your Father is [all these]…do not condemn and pronounce guilty, and you will not be condemned and pronounced guilty;  acquit and forgive and release (
give up resentment, let it drop), and you will be acquitted and forgiven and released.  Give, and [gifts] will be given to you;  good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over…
~Jesus (Luke 6:31,35-38 Amp.)~

Obey God’s message! Don’t fool yourselves by just listening to it.  If you hear the message and don’t obey it, you are like people who stare at themselves in a mirror and forget what they look like as soon as they leave. James 1:22-24


About SLAA Tilburg

Wat is seks- en liefdeverslaving? Wij in S.L.A.A. geloven dat seks- en liefdeverslaving een voortschrijdende ziekte is, die niet kan worden genezen maar die, zoals veel ziekten, wel tot staan kan worden gebracht. Zij kan verschillende vormen aannemen – inclusief (maar niet beperkt tot) een dwangmatige behoefte aan seks, extreme afhankelijkheid van één persoon (of meerdere personen), en/of een voortdurend in beslag genomen worden door romantiek, affaires of fantasieën. Er is sprake van een obsessief-dwangmatig patroon, seksueel of emotioneel (of beide), waarin relaties of seksuele activiteiten in toenemende mate destructief geworden zijn voor de loopbaan, het gezinsleven en het gevoel van zelfrespect. Als seks- en liefdeverslaving wordt veronachtzaamd, wordt zij altijd erger. Wanneer wij echter een eenvoudig programma volgen dat voor een reeks van mannen en vrouwen met dezelfde ziekte succesvol is gebleken, kunnen wij herstellen. In S.L.A.A. leren wij de realiteit te accepteren dat wij deze verslaving hebben
