If you want a thing done"right,"you have to do it yourself. -anonymous
We addicts can be very picky. We think there's only one way to do things. It's our way,but we call it the right way. When we think like this,three things happen. First,we put down other people. Second,we end up doing all the work. Third,everyone feels bad. The other person feels hurt that we don't respect him or her. And we feel angry that we"had"to do all the work.
We need to know that there are many ways to do things. It's ok when others don't do things our way. Their way probably works just fine for them. If they want our advice,they'll ask for it.
Prayer for day
Higher Power,help me accept other people and their ways.
Action for the day
Today,I'll watch how other people do things. Maybe I'll learn a better way to do something.
This spoke to me because I have control issues. I want,what I want,when I want it. I'm working on becoming more self-less than selfish. It's not always about me. I don't have to be under the spotlight all the time. If I focus more on others needs and how they feel,I myself is blessed because in the process my spirit is feed. Do that make sense? Like anything else,it too is a process that I have to work on daily.
Just for to day,I will strive to be the best ME,I can be.
