“I will not regret the past nor wish to close the door on it.” (Big Book, Page 83) Our past is something most of us try to forget. Many of us are so ashamed and embarrassed about the things we did and the people we hurt along our destructive paths prior to recovery. As we recover, we begin to see our past as an opportunity to help and connect with others who have experienced similar things.
Today, I will use my past experiences to help someone else. I will use my past to bear witness to God’s work in my life.
