Recently a friend mentioned that one of her former sponsors took an annual inventory of the relationship with her sponsees. I thought that this was a great idea. I put together a few important (to me) questions and answered them for my relationships. I am asking my OA sponsor and my OA sponsee to also answer the questions (and add questions if they are so inclined). I will then share my reflections with each of them and invite them to share with me.
Here are the questions that I came up with:
Why do I have a sponsor?
Why do I have sponsees?
Do I believe in my heart that the relationship with my sponsor is currently working for me? What about the daily calls? Are they necessary?
What about the relationship with my sponsee?
That I am taking time to inventory the relationships demonstrates how important sponsorship is to me and to my recovery.
I will share my reflections as a future recovery topic. I invite you to consider doing your own sponsorship inventory! Together we get better.
