WAIT” Why ..Am ..I.. Talking? .This is a good way to remember an important caution for us Al-Anons.
-Said by a frustrated Al-Anon who found herself using stinking, old behaviors.
“I wish I could pee in a cup to see if I was being codependent again”.
-FEAR: False.. Evidence.. Appearing..Real.
-I am powerless over God’s love. She loves me completely, eternally and tenderly on all occasions. She loves me as much on my worst day as She does on my best day.
-I can never overestimate God’s love. I am continually learning that God loves me way more than I thought he did yesterday.
-God is always near me. I a never have to pray Her in from Chicago.
-The place I learn about God’s love most powerfully is in the eyes of my family and friends. There is an exception to that rule. When I slow down and quiet myself I can feel love from friend who lives clear across the country. Right now I feel love from my good friend who lives in Atlanta.
-I characteristically under appreciate myself. I think I got in the habit of diminishing my self in an effort not to be proud.
-If I accept the view of myself that my love ones have in their heart I am far better off than when I base my decisions beginning with a gross under estimation of my power.
-Even if my love ones badly over estimate my value I still have a better starting point for my thinking when I am not giving into my tendency to consider myself as not good enough.
