"As the years go by, I bark less and I catch myself while barking more."
A sign of maturity is learning to delay pleasure.
I didn't understand what humility was when I first got here, but now if I lose the little I have, with it, I'll lose my sobriety.
"today I'm a better person, despite myself."
"I didn't have the self-respect to treat anyone right."
just make the decision to do so, and you will begin; whether you realize it or not.
"If I focus on the hurt, I don't hear the lesson."
If I keep getting pissed off at the same thing--then I’m not growing--I'm surviving.
