I erased the original text, because, as it was pointed out to me, it can be hurtful to my son. I didn't mean it that way and I apologize!


  1. Dina,

    I am uncomfortable with you judging, as you do in this post, calling your son a slacker. First, it isn't our position to do that. Where is the grace in that? Secondly, it makes your blog unsafe. What, will I be next?, any reader may conclude.

    In recovery, we clean our side of the street. That's it. I request you edit your post. It would meet my need for emotional safety, harmony and tranquility when dropping by. State the need beneath your judgment. That makes your blog a safer place to visit.

    We are to take out the beam in our eye, alone, not assessing others, said Jesus Christ. Read Romans 2: 1. If we judge another, and do the same thing, Paul tells us, we judge ourselves!

    Here's the passage:

    "You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge another, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things."

    1. As you might've noticed, 1. I call Sonny a slacker with humor and love.
      2. I express my concern about him because I know first hand, what unchecked, pleasure seeking behavior can do to a person's life. Is it better, if I call him a sluggard? Because that's what we talked about in the session.
