To determine whether the answer is in fact the right answer, the following are useful questions:
- What is for the good of all?
- Is the motivation giving or getting?
- Does it need to be said? Does it need to be said by me? Does it need to be said right now?
- Is the proposed action the best use of my time and energy?
- Is the proposed action in alignment with the principles of detachment in Al-Anon?
