I Have Two Choices

“We must avoid quick tempered criticism and furious, power-driven argument. The same goes for sulking or silent scorn.” – 12&12 p.91

It’s easy to get upset. It’s easy to blame others or act like a victim. But when the drama from my reaction to life not going my way is over, I have two choices: hang onto it or let it go. Letting go doesn’t mean co-signing what happened. For me, it means taking responsibility and making amends if I hurt another, setting healthy boundaries, and if necessary, detaching. Hanging onto my feeling of resentment, hurt or self-pity is like raising my hand and saying “I want to keep being unhappy”. Today, after emotional turmoil I will get into the solution, then let go and let God. Only by doing so will ILML!
