Thank God you saw the problem, took action, and got the heck out of the way!
You are much stronger than you realize!

As much as we must learn to forgive others, so too, should we learn to forgive ourselves.

As much as we should learn about our strengths, so too, should we learn and accept our limitations.

The problem with us is that we often attribute every tiny bit of problem to ourselves.

In our obsession to be in control of everything, we consequently believe that anything that ever goes wrong is our fault.

Accept your faults.

Do everything you can to correct them.

But learn also that not everything is your fault.

Learn that you cannot correct the things, which are beyond your control.

Stop trying to carry the burden of the world upon your shoulder. Carry only your own cross. That is all that is asked of you.

I don't regret phoning the PO. I wasn't really sure if it was the thing to do or not at the time and I worried about it being me trying to enforce consequences or be controlling.

Believe me when I say the stepson hated me for the first while.

oh well.

I did it because of what it was doing to his dad and I was fed up with it. I didn't want to deal with it anymore. I didn't know who it was going to take out first..the stepson or the was bad.

I felt very guilty when he got sentenced. I have gotten over it. Completely.
It would have happened sooner or later anyway..if he was still alive and that was getting questionable.

As I said before...he acknowledges today that being in prison saved his life.

We do what we know at the time..after that all I can do is let go of the outcome.
