Member: The first thing I would want to tell myself is that I have choices. I have choices that I am not aware of. One of the things I would tell myself, is that not everything that you think is good for you. Not every thought that your brain thinks is healthy, and that I have choices as to whether I act on every thought that I have. I hear things in our American culture that says that “You make me happy,” and “You make me angry,” and You complete me.” Right? I hear it in pop songs all the time.
Member: And that’s not true. That, you know, in the rooms I’ve heard that happiness is an inside job. And that’s absolutely true. I have a choice as to whether I can do the work that’s needed to become happy, joyous, and free; but I am worthy of that, I am loving and worthy of love, and I had, I really had no concept of that before I came into the rooms.
Moderator: Wow, thank you for sharing that information with us.
