Hello world!!!

Hello, World!

I have been thinking about some things in my life, how in the past I chose not to see my past in anything. But circumstances pushed me into this program called The Intensive Therapeutic Community. This program is designed to take you from not being a responsible person and turn you into coming accepting your past and being a responsible human being. I think I have turned that corner, so today I will share this message with y'all. If you know someone that's on the Internet, share this with them as well.

I am receptive to the idea that I always have a choice about how I respond to the experiences in my life.

If you have ever thought of yourself as a victim, you will have difficulty trusting yourself, God or anyone else. As long as you are a victim, you will have someone to blame, someone to hold accountable for what went on and what is going on in your life. Sure, something unpleasant happened! That was then, this is now. There is no need for you to remain a victim. As long as you are a victim, you can take no shame for the responsibility for who you are, what you do, or how you feel. You see, victims do not respond in choice. They react in fear. As long as you are in fear, you cannot trust.

As long as you are a victim, you cannot see the lesson. In fact, you may not want to see the lesson. You want an explanation! You want the whys answered but, no matter what anyone says, you will not believe it because you don't trust anyone. As a victim, you cannot admit that you have grown and are growing in response to your experience. Rather than choosing to see and celebrate your own growth, you choose hurt, anger, fear, indignation, and self-righteousness. In fact, the taste of anger is probably rising in your throat right now because you don't trust that anyone knows how horrible it was for you nor do you trust anyone other than you understands how that horror is still very active in your life.

They do.

They also realize that the reason you cannot let go of being a victim is because to do so means deciding for yourself what else you can be. And victims do not trust that they can do that.

until today, you may been singing a victim's song so loud that you did not realize that there is a redemption song. Just for today, trust yourself enough to sing your own praises about how far you have come, how much you have done, how much more you are willing to do. In spite of all that you have experienced.

Today, I am devoted to trusting myself to break the chains and shackles that have made me a victim!

It's my hope that whomever reads this message passes it on because you never know. This could be a message that saves or changes someone's life.
