one of the most important aspects of recovery.
not always the easier, softer way;
but essential to the progressive wellness
of any addict.
while one can be quite honest with others,
the ability to be completely truthful with
ourselves, can be elusive.
much of this is due to a lifestyle of self-deception,
fueled by ego and denial.
the most difficult facet to address, is the
lie of omission.
those are the "little things", we feel will
cause us discomfort if we expose them.
small as a deception might seem,
it is still a part of a bigger problem;
unwillingness to be totally honest...
with ourselves, as well as others.
we don't have to "remember", to tell the truth
