“If a crisis arises, or any problem baffles me, I hold it up to the light of the serenity prayer and extract it’s sting before it can hurt me. ” – One Day at a Time in Al-Anon
This quote reminds me that I don’t need to immediately react when I’m stung and hurt by unmet expectations, others behaviors, or uncomfortable situations. I can get back to feeling good if I simply breath deeply and recite the words of the serenity prayer while thinking how they apply. I may have been hurt, but I no longer need to suffer.
