I am Human; I Have Flaws

02 April 2015 Written by 

Often the most challenging, difficult, painful resentments are the ones we hold against ourselves. Hard to shake those off – those deep disappointed awarenesses of lifelong shortcomings and character traits which reveal to myself and others that I am not as strong or sound or capable as I expected I always should be.

What is my part in this? Am I willing to forgive myself and stop resenting myself? Do I willingly acknowledge the absolute fact that I am human; I have flaws?

This is especially difficult when it involves causing hurt to someone you love. Even after making amends, the old ego shouts insults and shakes it’s finger at us. “Stop making excuses for yourself!” the mind shouts in our face.

Indeed, I must give up the resentment and unforgiveness toward myself and offer to my wounded heart the olive branch of forgiveness and peace.

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
