This is my Responsibility

With the understanding that addiction is a disease and the realization that we are powerless over it as well as over people's lives, we are ready to do something useful and constructive with our own.

Then, and only then can we be of any help to others.

This is my Responsibility

Post by NeoMom » Sun Nov 26, 2017 7:56 am

Read this online this morning. A great reminder for me...
thought I would share.

This is NOT my Responsibility:

Other People"s words
Other people's actions
Other people's reactions
Other people's ideas
Other people's mistakes
Other people's consequences

This IS my Responsibility:

My words
My behavior
My reactions
My mistakes
My ideas
My efforts
And the consequences of my actions

I love this... When I firgured this out it was such a relief :) to know I really was not responsible for my AD. Before this I truly felt it was my responsibility to fix everything (and I mean everything) she broke including her relationship with her children. Don’t get me wrong I still get those thoughts but then I remember “I am not responsible for her actions, consequences, etc..”, OMG what a load off of my shoulders. I am no where near perfect but I am getting better with this program.
