June 2011: Responsibility man
From the June 2011 Grapevine Magazine
The burdens of obligation transform to gifts of sobriety
"Responsibility equaled an obligation I could never satisfy."
Before and during my drinking days, people were always talking to me about responsibility. I “had a responsibility” to be an excellent student, obedient son and religious child. I was also somehow responsible that children on the other side of the world didn’t go to bed hungry. Later, I was responsible to satisfy my employers’ demands, including late hours, much travel, and frequent separation from my family. For most of my life, I thought I was responsible to satisfy other’s expectations.
