“As an alcoholic, you will violate your standards quicker than you will lower them.”

–Robin Williams

How true that is for all of us with or without alcohol.

When I was in the midst of my own crazy cycle. The moment I realized I was nearing damage that could not be undone was when I stopped, self-reflected for a moment and realized how low my standards were compared to what my behavior was becoming.

The absolute dissolving of my standards was going to have to reach new lows in my life and my behavior was going to spiral out of control. I was going to lose it all.

Where are your standards at? Where are they headed? How do your actions compare to your standards?

Speaking of.

I have a really hard time having difficult conversations. Giving negative feedback to people makes my guts churn, pulse weaken, and knees weak. I think I would rather go to the dentist than have to give someone negative feedback.

The reality is, the times I have given negative feedback to people are the times I can point to with absolute certainty that I have grown, stretched and become a better version of me.

Here I go again. I need to grow up [again] and give feedback where feedback is due.

How do you do with hard conversations? Who do you need to have a hard conversation with?
