What’s Your One Word?

I have decided to choose one word to focus on for the rest of the year. That one word is RESPECT. When I show others respect, I hope to be respected. One word can be a game changer. It is not a resolution but a different way of looking at individuals. Lately I have not been so respectful to others. I thought to myself “What’s wrong with me?” I then reframe my thought process……It’s not about me. It’s about the actions of others that hurt me. Hurt people just love to hurt people. Individuals who are trapped in their own personal hell absolutely love to cut individuals down to their lower level basement.There is a solution to this dilemma…..You don’t have to accept their unacceptable behavior. You deserve to be treated with kindness and respect. Respect occurs when individuals can accept each other for all their differences. Respect can be hidden or shown in an outward manner. For example, in two weeks, I will start Fall semester in college. I worry about how the younger students will react to me. I do not act as a know it all. I am who I am. I the ability to make a pin the lives of others. What’s your word that impacts you the way you live each and everyday in recovery? Embrace your positive wounded and never let anyone take your sparkle away. You are worthy of respect and dignity.image
