A few weeks ago, I posted on our site and found myself assuming the role of the victim. I was blaming my H's deep-rooted insecurities and anger as the "reason" for my A. I was really down and having a pity party. To some extent, I still am having that pity party, but the difference is I can now objectively see what everyone was trying to tell me.
I certainly don't want to be a victim and absolutely want to take control of my life to try to make it better.
On Facebook, I subscribe to a page entitled, "Lessons Learned In Life." Most often their beauitful posts are uplifting and speak to me. Today's certainly did:
You will find that some people have a habit of blaming their circumstances or mistakes on fate or bad luck. Very few will admit that often, it's because of the choices they've made. In life, this is the basis or groundwork you need to prosper; the ability to accept it, take responsibility, learn from it and move on. (Link to this page here: http://www.facebook.com/lessonslearnedinlife.)
To those of you who tried hard to enlighten me, I say "thank you", for if you had not taken the time to so selflessly respond to me, I might not have begun a search for the truth you were trying so hard to get me to understand.
To my American compatriots, have a lovely Thanksgiving. To all my friends here, have a lovely week. Here's to taking responsibility and having the courage to make a better life for ourselves!
