Not buying into step 1 of the 12 steps
No offense to anyone, but I don't don't think step 1 of the 12 steps is very self-serving. To say one is powerless over anything is already saying (at least in my mind) that you can't overcome it. No one is powerless over their problem with procrastination, in my humble opinion. I generally understand the rest of the steps and agree with most of them. I guess what strikes me with step 1 is that it's saying we are powerless and only by a higher power can we overcome procrastination (or any other addiction). What about the folks who don't believe in a higher power? I am NOT an atheist, I am a believer of God. I'm just saying. It just seems to me step 1 encourages learned helplessness-can't do anything about it UNLESS...... Does this make sense?
