Playing the victim hurts no one but myself. For so long I lived life blaming others for my troubles. Anger and resentment kept me spiritually sick and pretty miserable.
It blocks me from others and God.
When blocked from God, what keeps me from relapse?
As an alcoholic, I can’t afford to stay in anger and resentment.
I most always have had a part in my past problems. Whether it be the situations I placed myself in, my own actions, the people I brought into my life and the kind of choices I made, if I honestly look at myself I will find that I brought on this misery.
To cover up my own part, I get angry at others.
Not only can I find freedom from finding my part and letting go of anger but I grow spiritually and make better decisions, have better relationships and find more happiness.
By not playing the victim, I start creating my own destiny.
I am destined to repeat history if I don’t learn from it.
Forgiveness is not for others, it is for my own inner peace.
Today I will look at my part, learn from the past and forgive.
I will be free.
