We cannot change our families or the past

It is a true proverb, that if you live with a lame man you will learn to halt.

Plutarch

Working through the memories of childhood is a task each of us eventually faces.
The important is to concentrate on our behavior.
We cannot change our families or the past, but we can change our attitudes toward them.
By braining back our attention to ourselves, resentment and fruitless anger yield to honesty and humility.

Detaching from the things we cannot change, forgiving the harm done to use, and  letting go of the past are important parts of our healing.

Say with me:

Just for today, I will let go of anger and resentment toward my family and focus on taking care of myself.
