Day 104 - Give Myself An Out August 11 2015

Whenever I ask someone for a favor, I always add "no worries if you can't." I give the person an out. It hit me that I never give myself the same out. In recovery, I have learned that what I want for other people I should want for myself. I have lived under a stricter standard of expectations. Upon this realization, I immediately felt relief. A more compassionate and gracious way to walk through this life.
