All my life I had lived the deepest of lies, not sharing with anyone my true thoughts and feelings. I thought I had a direct line to God,
and I built a wall of distrust around myself. In AA, I faced the pervasive “we” of the Twelve Steps and gradually realized
that I can separate and protect my sobriety from outside hazards only inasmuch as I rely on the sober experience of other AA members
and share their journey through the steps to recovery.

Sharing is sometimes more demanding than giving.
