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