Reflection for the Day
If I am troubled, worried, exasperated or frustrated, do I tend to rationalize the situation and lay the blame on someone else? When I am in such a state, is my conversation, “He did …,” “She said …,” “They did …?” Or can I honestly admit that perhaps I’m at fault? My peace of mind depends on overcoming my negative attitudes and tendency toward rationalization.
Will I try, day by day, to be rigorously honest with myself?
Today I Pray
May I catch myself as I talk in the third person, “He did …” or “They promised …” or “She said she would …” and listen for the blaming that has become such a pattern for me and preserves delusion. May I do a turnabout and face myself instead.
Today I Will Remember
Honesty is the only policy.
