Nobody’s Girl Daily Reflections 2/17/17:Empathy heals.
When we are hurting it’s hard to find forgiveness. My sponsor has always suggested to find empathy. What? Why?
It’s not so much for the the person / situation as it is for us. Addicts just can’t afford resentments. This is why the fourth step has helped so many. By working 4-9 we find this amazing gift of empathy. I write about it today because I’m having to find empathy for someone who has undeniably hurt my family extensively. In order to have clear head and accomplish what needs to happen next. I want to be angry. But the truth is they are ill. So coming from this understanding as I have been through this process before and it has helped me become free of the insanity for my life.
Staying the process for me helps me and helps others in my life. We are almost through this situation and while it’s taken it’s toll we have all as a family come through on our feet and the sun is shining. The rest is up to the law.
I never had a lot of faith in the law because of my childhood but I have seen it differently since recovery.
The system doesn’t always work but when it does it’s amazing. On the good news out little princess is recovering and doing really good!! So grateful for all the prayers!!! Life is precious too precious to allow the things that come along to get us down and steal our peace of mind in recovery we fought hard for a new life don’t let it go no matter what!! Keep coming back it works !!! Have a beautiful day! Www.sybilpaige.com
