Daily reading for March 30

HONESTY

As our two sons were growing up, my husband and I stressed that they should always be honest with us. We told them repeatedly that they would not be punished for telling us the truth. Just do not lie. When I found out that our youngest son had been using drugs for two years, I realized that he had told us many lies. I was devastated by the amount of deceit that it took for him to hide his addiction. When he finally went into a rehab program, the truth about his addiction began to reveal itself. Little by little, his honesty began to return. It was as though an enormous weight was being lifted from his shoulders. Now that my husband and I are in Nar-Anon, I see that honesty is a problem for both of us, not just for the addict. There are many times when I do not want to see the truth about myself. With every meeting I attend, I learn a new bit of my truth. I practice my program daily and use it in all my affairs. By living these principles with the help of my Higher Power, I come much closer to being honest with others and myself. I also feel an enormous burden being lifted from my shoulders.

Thought for Today: Total honesty requires perfection. I am not perfect. I am doing the best I can today with the help of my Higher Power and the Nar-Anon fellowship. I will allow others this same luxury.

“There’s always room for improvement, you know-it's the biggest room in the house." ~ Louise Heath Leber
