3. Made a decision to entrust our will and our lives to the care of the collective wisdom and resources of those who have searched before us.
I’m so tired of trying to lose weight and not binge on my own and being unsuccessful. I need help from others who have entrusted their will to the OA fellowship and have been abstinent.
However, I’m very independent, selfish, and prideful. If I achieve something, I want the credit for it. And I want other people to see me as “doing a great job.” I care a lot about what other people think of me. But weight and food are two areas where I’ve always struggled. It’s time for me to do something different. It’s time for me to surrender.
