Courage To Change 03/29/14

Itís time I started being nicer to myself. The voices in my head that tell me Iím not good enough do not
speak the truth; they merely reflect the damaged self esteem that results from living with alcoholism. When I
recognize that fact, I can tell them to be quiet! I will no longer listen!
Al-Anon recovery has given me gentler, loving thoughts. These remind me that I am lovable and I can learn to love myself. When I open my mind enough to hear that message, I can begin to hear all the other wonderful
sounds of life, and the abusive thoughts vanish.

Todayís Reminder

Treating myself with kindness and respect helps me to
challenge my own self-criticism. Today I will pay particular
attention to any voice that speaks lovingly.

ďWe need to learn to live, to focus on something good
or useful to our lives and let the rest of the world go
about its business.Ē
