“I am not
a victim of others,
but rather a victim
of my expectations,
choices and dishonesty.”
Daily Reflections, p. 183
What did you expect them to do,
open their arms in welcome and say thank you
for using and abusing me ? ? ?
The selfish, self-centered alcoholic
is always thinking of self first, expecting the world
to meet his every desire, his every want.
They did not do it to me, I did it to myself,
I expected them to do what I wanted,
when I wanted it done and presumably at
a time and place of my choosing.
When those things didn’t happen
I accused them,
when in reality I did it to myself.
Today, the program reminds me that I must
always examine my motives
before I expect anything.
Recovery is one day at a time.
Sobriety is a blessing from our Higher Power.
ME and the Boss
And, if no one has told you yet today,
God loves you and so do we.
