There is a safety and security that comes from surrounding yourself with direct, honest people. To attract people of that nature, we must also be direct and honest. Early in my recovery it was difficult for me as I never wanted to hurt another’s feelings. What I didn’t realize was in the process of protecting another’s feelings I was hurting myself. It may not always be easy, but it is important to our self-esteem that we find the courage to do our best.
