Learning to Give, Learning to Live

I spent most of my life worrying about myself, thinking that I was unwanted, that I was unloved. I've learned since being in AA that the more I worry about me loving you, and the less I worry about you loving me, the happier I'll be.

I discovered a fellowship of human beings that I'd never seen before. . .I learned how to be a friend. . . There was nowhere else I could have done that. I have learned that the more I give, the more I will have; the more I learn to give, the more I learn to live.
