The Victim

October Roses 038

.

“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.
