Ever felt like certain character flaws just won't let go, no matter how hard you try? In this episode of Take 12 Recovery Radio, titled 'Step 10 Pets', Monty Dale Meyer, aka the Monty'man, and his co-hosts dive into these persistent defects of character that seem to keep popping up. They affectionately call them 'Step 10 Pets'. These are the traits that, despite your best efforts, keep resurfacing and can be a real pain to deal with.
The hosts, including Tom Williams and Alicia Martinez, share their personal experiences with these recurring flaws. From self-centredness to the desire for recognition, they explore how these issues can sneak back into your life even when you think you've got them under control. They discuss the importance of recognising and acknowledging these defects, praying for guidance, and actively working towards self-improvement. You'll find plenty of humour and candid moments as the hosts reflect on their own struggles.
For example, Alicia's shirt that reads 'Fun fact: I don't care' sparks a hilarious conversation about her journey to genuinely care more. The episode also features a lively discussion on group texts and the annoyance they bring, adding a light-hearted touch to the serious topic at hand. Closing the episode is a song by Amy Grant, 'Old Man’s Rubble', which ties in perfectly with the theme of letting go of old habits.
This episode is a must-listen if you're looking for relatable stories and practical advice on managing those pesky character defects that just won't go away. So why not give it a listen and see if you can relate to any of these 'Step 10 Pets'?
