Why Things Fall Apart


I swiped this graphic from Mr SponsorPants' page because it reminds me to let go of resentments. Sometimes people just don't feel or act in the way I want them to. Sometimes people disappoint me. But whenever I find myself starting to blame them (they're stupid, they're stubborn, they're lazy, they're inconsiderate), lately I try to pull myself up short. Blaming leads me right to resentment, and when I resent something or someone, that's a trigger for me to drink.

Instead I try to remind myself that no one is perfect (including me), and that honestly? The best things in my life that have happened to me have tended to come about when things didn't go according to plan.
