No amount of Razor Wire

Two members shared how their mothers were now asking their sober incarcerated sons for advice. I could not keep my self-constructed dam in place any longer.

I often witness members at AA meetings express their emotions with tears; usually over recognition of the harms done to themselves or others, as well as over a newfound awareness of God in their lives. Yet I’ve never been able to feel and share my emotions at that most visible level. As I listen to others share such deep feelings, I sometimes question myself over the quality of my own spiritual awakening.
