“… defective relations with other human beings have nearly always been the immediate cause of our woes…” – 12&12 p.80
There have been times in my life when my woes were caused by being sick, struggling financially, or my car breaking down. Problems such as these tend to resolve themselves in a relatively short period of time, and aftwards I forget the problem ever happened. This is not so with personal relationships. The hurt others cause me, along with the hurt I have caused them, tends to live in my memory for days, weeks, months or even years, causing resentment, anger, guilt, and self-pity. The good news is that I’ve discovered a set of actions whereby those hurtful memories subside, returning me to peace, even when I think of those people. By doing the daily deal, I’m no longer their prisoner. I let go of them, the memory of the hurt and ILML!
