Alcoholism in the Simplest Terms

Lord, I am far too much influenced by what people think of me.

Which means that I am always pretending to be either richer or smarter or nicer than I really am.

Please prevent me from trying to attract attention.

Don’t let me gloat over praise on the one hand or be discouraged by criticism on the other.

Nor let me waste time weaving imaginary situations in which the most heroic, charming, witty person present is myself.

Show me how to be humble of heart like You.
