Webster says that discernment is the ability to judge well.
But, true discernment means not only distinguishing the right from the wrong;
it means distinguishing the primary from the secondary,
the essential from the indifferent, and the
permanent from the temporary.
And, yes, it means distinguishing between the good and the better,
and even between the better and the best.

What are some of the consequences of bad discernment when you were in recovery?
What would you do different?

What recovery tools do you use in this process?
Can you judge something as good or bad by yourself?

How do you know when something is right for you?
