It is possible -- even easy -- to take a perfectly good day and ruin it, through the power of your own mind and its lousy, stinking thinking.
The likelihood of this happening (or not) for me is in direct proportion to the amount of AA meetings I have been to in a week.
The quality of Willingness is like a muscle; without use it atrophies.
Some people are so determined to be victims that if no one around is victimizing them they will create a completely fictitious scenario in their mind which allows them to feel victimized. One of the most important things to consider about this is that, since, by necessity, they are blind to this mechanism at work, it is possible (perhaps even likely?) that there are dysfunctional mechanisms at work within any of us me which we I are am also completely blind to, and which create wholly fictitious scenarios to validate a personal, dysfunctional script/identity.
Again, the likelihood of this happening (or not) to me is in direct proportion to the amount of AA meetings I have been to in a week.
