Today’s thought from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation is:
It is not uncommon to hear in group, “Why do these things always happen to me?” If “these things” are always happening to us, the obvious answer is that we somehow bring them on ourselves. We are largely unconscious of what we’re doing wrong until, slowly, eventually; we manage to dig ourselves out from the results. (It seems incredible that we actually seek to be hurt, but in a way many of us do so, with regularity.)
But blaming others for our problems and indulging in self-pity don’t move us along in our program.
Am I still blaming others?
Higher Power, help me take responsibility for myself and my actions, because blaming others will only keep me stuck.
