I’m working my steps here. But…
What Is Step 9?
Step 9 begins:
“Make direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.”*
…my grown kids are a toughie.
They are ssssoooo tired of hearing me say “I’m sorry”.
Because I have often used that statement in the past to excuse and ask for absolution.
* I copied this from a very helpful article by buddy t at verywellmind.com
So I’m trying to get a new way of saying Sorry.
By helping others
By helping and not hating myself
By praying for my kids and grands every day
By watching 👀 for opportunities to do good that do not take credit or manipulate.
By being the thing I wish I had
Innocent and cheerful
Relentless but not pushy, just infectious
Forgiveness …forgiven… forgiving
Let it go.
Make room for love
