No One's Perfect

by Ur-a-Jew (See all authors)

I believe one of the important steps to sobriety is recognizing that we are not perfect and never will be perfect. To use Steve's moshul, we are all pickles and we won't be cucumbers anymore. But it's okay to be a pickle. Some may say it's even better. If we are aiming for perfection we will never get there, and it makes it so much easier to slip and fall.

I'm just a guy trying to stay sober, and with the help of G-d I've managed to do so for over 200 days. What tomorrow or later today holds, I don't know. But I know that the past 200 days is something that I will always have, no matter what happens tomorrow. And I also know that it sure beats where I was.
