“I thought that in every conflict, and every confrontation, someone was invariably at fault. It was essential to assign blame… I became a chronic scorekeeper… Defensive and anxious, I made sure my back was always covered.” – Courage to Change
Yep. That was me. In fact, when I’m not really working my program diligently, getting plenty of rest, reading out of inspirational books, writing gratitude lists, composing these spiritual messages, getting to meetings, praying, meditating, exercising, eating well, working, making time to have fun, and sharing recovery with others, I fall back into the blame game. I become very reactive and notice how empty the glass appears. Consistency in my program is the key that opens the door to living in the solution. It works when I work it, and when I do… ILML!
