I am learning today how to think in more positive terms about myself.
“Once we admit that our depressed thinking is what conditions us to see our world as a hopeless place to live, the more we will try to change the way we think.”
CLARIFICATION OF THOUGHT
When I was able to admit that I have need of improvement for some area of my life, things begin to happen. I believe that now I have a program in front of me that can help me to feel better, the more I use it on a daily basis. As one member of the Twelve Step group, Depressed Anonymous points out, “I had to go and open that door for the first time because there was no other place to go. I had already used up all the hiding places in my life.” Now that we admit we need help, help is on the way.”
It is always difficult to change. Millions of others are leading lives of peace, sobriety and hope as they place their trust in their Higher Power and commit themselves to learning how to get better. They are learning that by having faith in God, themselves and the fellowship of the group, life does indeed get better. I am going to get better, the more I work and live the Twelve Steps.
O God, we know that our hope in you will make it possible for us to find hope in our lives every day. That’s a Promise.
