Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.” In step 7 of the 12×12 it says that ” humility, as a word, is often misunderstood”. When asked, what is the opposite of humility; my first guess would be Pride. Who could argue that? It was in my 22nd year of sobriety, when I had a phone call from my first wife’s husband at the time and the conversation started going south. I was trying to refrain from bickering with him and when he couldn’t get any traction, he made the statement that, “He had heard stories about me in the past, and that I was no angel.” I thought about for a few seconds, and responded “Dave, I’ve done a lot of things in my life that I’m not proud of, but I’m not ashamed of anything I’ve done in the last 22 years.” The call ended peacefully.
