I Need

I am responsible for me. I am not responsible for others, I am not responsible for the choices they make. I am responsible for my part in my friendships and relationships. I have boundaries today and I let others know what my expectations are. If I don’t like something I work to let others know this, in a courteous and kind way. My needs and wants may differ from those people around me and it’s up to me to voice that difference. I have personal boundaries when it comes to my home, and my life choices. While I work to make my needs known to others, I also work to allow others to have their own boundaries. I have found that I need to place an equal value on my needs versus the needs of others in my life. It is totally up to me to voice my likes and dislikes because I cannot expect others to honor my wishes if they do not know them.

  1. It’s not so much what we do between the Serenity Prayer and the Lord’s prayer as what we do between the Lord’s prayer and the Serenity Prayer”.

    There is a powerful suggestion and implication here that we be and are always in prayer. –– even when we revert to practicing old ideas.

    I’m Harry, grateful alcoholic and voted twelve stepper.

  2. “…even when we revert to practicing old ideas…”
    Yes, indeed, and I do.
    And you showed me that I can be aware of it, and can come back on the beam anytime I wish. And be forgiven as I forgive,
    And come back into, and dwell within, the light that I may be useful to others…or keep my head stuck in the toilet, repeatedly flushing it whist I wonder if the tide will ever stop…
    Ahhh, the power of restored choice.
    Grateful for the Gift

  3. Top of the morning family,
    RE: I cannot expect others to honor my wishes (if they do not know them).
    I like it…

    God knows our needs.
    -Will I allow Him the opportunity to share it with me?
    -Do I believe my feelings or His truth?
    -What is my greatest need that I’m facing today?
    For me, I have to be pretty much, yes sir’eee bob totally disgusted with an area of my life; then I will take action.
    Today, I’m learning that Divine Mercy is patiently waiting for me to turn to Him.
    Today, I’m growing / knowing who I am and whom I’m not.

    It’s a good day to have a good day.
