This is an issue you & other voters deeply care about. Un-treated addiction directly affects nearly 70% of Indians as it drains resources & cripples souls. The disease of addiction is an equal opportunity destroyer & the solution depends on informed, bipartisan action.

I like a man with faults, especially when he knows it. To err is human - I'm uncomfortable around Saints. —Hugh Prather.

 

We are more comfortable around a man who has faults & knows it. We respect such a man. So why do we have such a hard time admitting our own faults? This matter of honesty comes very gradually & only with hard work. We may have to force ourselves to admit a fault because we expect to feel unworthy. In fact, what we do feel after admitting a fault is peacefulness & self-respect. We may expect to be rejected & judged by friends, but usually friendships grow more solid when we admit our faults. A true friend does not need to trust that we will always be right, only that we will be honest.

At this moment are we being nagged by some fault? Is there something about the way we have talked to someone that doesn't seem right? Have we been unfair or dishonest? This is a program of progress, not perfection. So, to make progress we admit our imperfections, & as we do, we become more fully human. “God, in this moment when I feel my human mistakes, help me to be open to your love.”
