Dependency

Gratitude List 17/12/2018

Co-dependency. My serenity used to depend so much on the behaviours and actions of others. Accepting the things I cannot change, in particular people, has ironically changed that dependency for the better.

Today I am grateful my serenity is less affected by someone being rude to me.

Today I am grateful my serenity is less affected by someone expressing an opinion that opposes my own.

Today I am grateful my serenity is less affected by someone’s success.

Today I am grateful my serenity is less affected by someone not doing as I would.

Today I am grateful my serenity is less affected by someone’s unhappiness.

Today I am grateful my serenity is less affected by someone’s criticism.

Today I am grateful my serenity is less affected by someone displaying defects.

Today I am grateful my serenity is less affected by how much someone likes me or how much they like what I do.

It isn’t always straightforward, some moments are tougher than others and sometimes my serenity dips significantly. But I am progressing in the right direction and will continue to do so if I put in the necessary action.
