Hello soberfriend, my name is Robert and I am a los Angeles area alcoholic. Question for you, were you sure you cover all the hurt you did when you made your amends? I know I didn't, and the reason I know this because at 26 years sober I am still discovering things that I had done. things that I didn't think were wrong 25 or even 5 years ago. I know I am responsible for my side of the street any more that that I am still control the outcome. the funny part is my ex-wife just make one to me couple of weeks ago. I had tried to make mine to her 18 years ago and she wasn't having any part of it. I watched here carry this stuff around for 18 years and I was glad she freed herself of the excess baggage but that was about her not me.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in pretty, well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming WOW What a ride!!!!
