I mentioned to my sponsor that someone in the meeting last night went on and on in sharing. Someone actually left during this person's sharing. My sponsor responded " principles before personalities" . I reread tradition 12 and do not think her response was actually on point this time.
It seems to me that even though we are trying to become better persons by practicing the steps that thinking someone should make a better attempt at the 3 minute sharing guideline is not insane thinking just pragmatic. I like to listen to people share at meetings. Their words often help me grow. I do not want to listen to one person for 10 minutes when there are 20 to 25 people in the room and the person is off topic. Comments???
