New Choices

New Choices

Change is never easy,  neither is making new choices.  The hardest part of the process is usually that of taking responsibility for the choices we’ve made in the past.  Especially those choices were not so good.

The kind of personal responsibility I’m talking about is a HUGE key to healing.  But what about choices that were made for us.  The choices that other people made for a us in our childhood, like abuse, abandonment, and rejection, are NEVER our fault.  However now, as adults, we CAN take responsibility for the way we responded to the abuse, the abandonment, the rejection, even though as a child we didn’t know how else to handle it.  The fact is, until we are willing to take that kind of responsibility, we will get very little healing in our lives.  THIS IS GOOD NEWS!  It means that everywhere I can take personal responsibility, I have the power to change my life!
