Try not to complicate what the most obvious can direct you toward.

"I remember when I started my recovery and I was attending a group in rehab. The topic of discussion one day was on identifying our shortcomings. I remember this day because it was the second day I was there after years of drug use. I heard about some pretty deep and revealing shortcomings of each group member. The point was for the group members to challenge each other in hopes it would encourage deeper exploration and acknowledgement of possible shortcomings. When it got around to me, I really didn't feel like talking so I passed. I mean it was a little overwhelming for me to try to discuss my shortcomings the second day I was there. Anyways, it is not like I did not know my shortcomings, they were pretty obvious to me as I sat there shaking and sweating from withdrawal." -W.V.
