Every great team that I have been a part of – sports or business or school – There is a since of trust that every member of that team had for everyone else. This trust does not happen naturally. There can be no trust without vulnerability. YHC is one of the many PAX members who struggled with addiction and this summer it will be 25 years of sobriety. I have learned through this time that many of my friends didn’t want to stay friends if I couldn’t be that party guy with them. I learned who could be true friends; but these true friends only got that chance when I was vulnerable with them. Once I made the decision that I needed to stop drinking, the addiction part of easy. God took every desire that I had to drink. I would still go out with guys and have O’Doul’s (that was the only NA beer around). It was the friends that only knew me as the party guy that had trouble with me not drinking.
Now – I am learning that I have a truly great resource in F3 and a network of PAX members that I can count on and still get vulnerable with. I challenge you to do the same. Share what is on your heart and be ready to realize that you are probably not the only one going through it.
