Often called “fooling ourselves” this practice can be very dangerous. Rationalization is another word synonymous with self-deception. The fourth step of the AA program is our first practice out of this paralyzing character defect. Often times we are the kind of people who cannot decipher the difference between fact and fiction. We don’t know what the real truth is. Thank God for the people that we have turned to in order to help us. If we can be honest with another human being about what is going on in our lives then we can begin to come out of fooling ourselves on what the truth really is.
I am grateful for my ability to play. Today I will attempt to be playful. I pray for the desire to play.
