“The best cure for one’s bad tendencies is to see them in action in another person.”
– Alain de Botton
We all know the first line of the Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, “Hi my name is X and I’m a recovering alcoholic.” In truth, we all, if we are trying to become better people, are recovering from something. Whether it is bad habits are old ways of thinking, there is something about ourselves that we are trying to leave behind but a seed of it will probably always be with us.
What old patterns of thought or action are you trying to recover from? What is standing in your way? Do you really want to change? Do you want to change for yourself or to spare others around you? The first step is admitting the problem. What better way than sharing that problem with all of your sisters and brothers in the Dungeon?
The article that you link to this prompt should be a new post written specifically for this assignment.
Dungeon Prompts can be a vehicle for us to open up the abandoned rooms inside ourselves and dust them off a bit. Take the prompt, explore the recesses of your mind, and get back with a poem, story, essay or creative offering. Link your post to this specific prompt page and I’ll share your link back with our readers.
To participate, all you’ll need to do is:
1. Tag your post with: “DungeonPrompts”
2. Link back to this page in the body of your post *
3. Dive deep within and give us a glimpse of your soul!**
*note: If the pingback doesn’t work, then please leave the link to your post in the comment section.
**If you don’t have a blog please feel free to join the discussion in the comment section
Be sure and come back to check out the other prompt contributors throughout the week. Comment on their posts and let them know what you think. Together we can help create a community of great writers and honest seekers. We are a mad blend, let us honor the wisdom within.
