“I [learn to] trust those who are trustworthy” ~ Promise Seven.
Before attending my first CoDA meeting, I had an open-door policy for trust. I trusted people and what they said – until they gave me a reason not to.
With the help of CoDA’s 12 Promises, I’ve learned to protect myself by trusting people’s actions, and not just single actions, but actions repeated over time. Now my window of trust (which is no longer a door) is only open for those whose actions match their words over time – trustworthy people.
For this lesson I am forever grateful.
Peace & Healing
