Keep Coming Back

As I sat in the AA meeting tonight, I realized that sometimes people become attached to the persona that they typically project… and sometimes that persona doesn’t really do them justice. Every group needs a smart ass. But the when wisecracks and insults grossly overshadow the message, then each share just becomes a mini-theater of ego. Which is unfortunate, when really, behind the shadow play of barbed words and caustic wit, there lies a sensitive, wise person who genuinely loves the people that are around him.

Would it be too much to ask to let that persona come to the meeting every once in a while? We would like that persona to keep coming back.
