This is one of the best things I’ve ever seen here. It describes me, to a T.
I can out-stubborn Taurus people. I used to be proud of this; I thought my tenacity was a strength. It’s taken me decades to slowly realize how I’ve been damaging my own life and hurting others by willfully holding out for what I think I want. I’m ashamed to admit, the last time this happened, I was about 50 years old. You would think I’d be more grown up by that time. I wasn’t.
I’m afraid willfulness is never going to leave me completely. So at times like this (while my life is going fairly well), I’m trying to train myself to be more flexible, more accepting, more willing to let go. So that hopefully, the next time my life isn’t going so well, I’ll be in a better state of mind to handle it.
This article definitely goes in my recovery database.
What if….I could do Step Three BEFORE my life becomes a total disaster?
