Get Out Of Yourself

Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. -Philippians 2:4 (NKJV)

It is common to hear [in certain twelve step fellowships] that the best way to get out of your own trouble is by immersing yourself in the needs of others. For many people newly introduced to the 12 steps, this is big news– as they are often the most self-centered people imaginable. That said, once folks swap bad habits for good ones (like caring about others) they quickly realize how good it feels to be of service to those in need and how it ultimately is self-serving as well!
