Self criticism seems to be my addiction.
I acquired this habit at some point in childhood, and had it that I had to be perfect to have
Gods favor. Whenever I did not meet my own standards, I would beat myself up, be down,
guilty, defeated, sad, sorry, on, and on.
This wasted a lot of time, and was not biblical.
Joel helped me to see things differently, and to experience the goodness of Gods love.
This has made my life better in so many ways.
The more I listen to Joel with his uplifting message, the better man I want to be.
I never did buy into the victim mentality of
"I'm and alcoholic".
It never resonated to affirm that you have a disease.
Well, this book says "cure", and I agree.
I acquired a new way to look at life, myself, and others. My life is changed!
I feel that this moving, important, summary
of reality in our world has changed, and is changing, it for the better. Greg's work shores me up and reminds me that, while I still have breath, I, too, can make a difference.
