Sample text

As you learned in the previous chapter, a main source of much of our psychological distress stems from the belief that we need to be something we aren’t—that is, attempting to live by the unreasonable demands of our false-self. We have alienated ourselves from our true-self in favor of an idealized version of who we should be. We’ve lost sight of the importance of character, people-centered values, keeping our integrity, authenticity and honesty, and honoring our true-self. We’ve made things more important than people.

We swallow this solution whole and uncritically accept its nonsense. To describe this process, I used the following analogy in 12 Smart Things to Do When the Booze and Drugs Are Gone. Have you ever seen a beautiful bonsai tree? A bonsai artist works patiently over many years to constrain what should be a full-sized tree into perfect miniature. The artist constantly prunes the tree, wraps wires around its branches to shape them, deprives it of water, and trims its roots to fit a tiny pot. Such a tree becomes perfect to look at.

Later we will unpack the particular therapeutic value of each Step, but for now I want us to think of Steps 1–7 as a foundry that forges a key from honesty, open-mindedness, willingness, and self-awareness. That key unlocks a chest of hidden treasures: emotional sobriety, a positive self-concept, and an amazing inner force for growth, self-respect, trustworthiness, integrity, and wholeness. Many of us won’t discover these hidden treasures because we balk at the difficult tasks inherent in Steps 8, 9, and 10.
