July 5, 2015 – Readings in Recovery: Today’s Gift from Hazelden

Sunday, July 5, 2015

Today’s thought from Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:

Stop Fixing Others

Dear Higher Power,

When I am overly dependent on others, I try to fix them. I have a real talent in pinpointing what is wrong with other people. But the very thing that enables me to see their defects most often blinds me to the same, sometimes even worse, shortcomings in myself.

Help me stop fretting about others and instead focus on correcting my own character defects.
