The 4th Dimension with Toby C. Guest: Sandy D. | The Evil Blame of Shame and Exceptionalism
Toby and Sandy D. take a calm, objective look at Sandy’s earliest efforts to overcome the “bondage of self.” Was it possible that Sandy was transmuting shame by his material achievement and superlative exceptionalism? Was it possible that Sandy was still slowly dying inside and concealed this secret through his relationship with alcohol? It is possible that despite all the social acceptance and material success, Sandy was never able to be his true authentic self – rejecting himself as never being quite “satisfied.” Discover how Sandy’s demons of fear and emotional insecurity prevented him from opening himself up to a God of his understand as expressed through the recovery group – a fellowship that his pedigree peers might reject. Let us hit a few more bumps in the road of early recovery and learn from them.
