one last thought to ask for help in my thoughts ...

where does live and let live end and apathy begin?
is unity going to any length to people please and not rock the boat or is a common problem and a common solution on which we can agree ... brotherly love and harmonious action .
if i feel traditions are being violated and the text is being blasted do i make my point with my feet or do i share my truth in a loving way?
it is such a hard thing to figure out. i realize i cannot change the world. i also do not want to just spit on the Power of God by not taking a stand in the truth that this program, not MY program, saved my life by getting me plugged into a power greater than myself. do i walk away from a hostile environment or do i crawl before no man and continue to quote the literature despite adversity.
i live in dc so there are LOTS of great meeting other than this one so it is easy enough to go elsewhere.
thanks all for listening and i sound like a jerk please let me know.

Thanks for your kindness and comments.
I consider all of you as my Online Sponsor. ;-)

Each of you help me daily, in ways that you may not know.
Each time you share your experiences and your life, your recovery,
your suggestions, the things that you learn from your sponsors and
all the good and the bad stuff that goes on -- I learn from it. And,
I do my best to use it to grow in understanding.

You keep me in check. :-)
You help me to check my footing, to double-check and triple-check out things
and sources. Believe me -- I feel like I'm the luckiest one of all of us!

This website and forum -- which is "ALL OF YOU" that come here and participate
and share -- has been one of the most instrumental tools that has continued to
help me stay sober and to get through some of the toughest times of my life.
God speaks to me -- through you. So, thank you, big time!

This forum is so good for me too. I also look upon it as another sponsor. Thank God for this forum, my sponsor, the Big Book, and the fellowship.
