TWELVE STEPS OF A SPONSOR


TWELVE STEPS OF A SPONSOR





1: I WILL HELP YOU GROW TO BECOME MORE PRODUCTIVE BY YOUR OWN DEFINITION.


2: I CANNOT CONVINCE YOU OF THE CRUCIAL CHOICE OF CHOOSING THE SCARY UNCERTAINTY OF GROWING OVER THE SAFE MISERY OF NOT GROWING.


3: I WANT TO KNOW YOU AS A FRIEND, YET I CANNOT GET CLOSE TO YOU WHEN YOU CHOOSE NOT TO GET CLOSE TO ME.


4: I WILL HELP YOU BECOME MORE AUTONOMOUS, BECOME MORE LOVING OF YOURSELF, AND MORE FREE TO CONTINUE BECOMING THE AUTHORITY OF YOUR OWN LIFE.


5: I CANNOT GIVE YOU GROWTH OR GROW FOR YOU; YOU MUST GROW FOR YOUSELF-- GRIM AS IT MAY BE AT TIMES.


6: I WILL BE THERE FOR YOU AND HANG IN THERE WITH YOU AS LONG AS I GET EVEN THE SIGHTEST HINT THAT YOU ARE TRYING TO GROW.


7: I CANNOT TAKE AWAY YOUR LONELINESS OR PAIN.


8: I CANNOT EVALUTATE YOUR GOALS OR TELL YOU WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU IN YOUR WORLD.


9: I CANNOT "FIX YOU" SIMPLY BECAUSE I CANNOT.


10: I CANNOT STAND BY AND WATCH YOU WALLOW IN LIMBO.


11: WHEN I BEGIN TO CARE FOR YOU OUT OF PITY OR WHEN I BEGIN TO LOSE TRUST IN YOU, THEN I AM TOXIC FOR YOU AND YOU ME.


12: IF YOU CAN ACCEPT ALL THIS, THEN PERHAPS WE CAN HELP EACH OTHER BECOME WHAT GOD MEANT US TO BE... MATURE, LOVING, HUMAN BEINGS.
