Broken People are not POSSESSED

With all the turmoil, and changes that I have experienced in forty years, I have been quite the verbal one with people that continuously blame others and disease for their behavior problems.  It gets old when anyone claims they can't control typing or saying mean things!

You are not possessed, just acting out.

I am broken, who hasn't been broken? Many of us are from time to time!

Whether we are beat up as a child, told we are unworthy, or just attention seekers, our behavior can be "less than ideal".

I relate to broken people well, as my struggles can cause anxiety, and stress!!

When does it end?

Awareness of knowing that I only had control over what I can say, and what I do.

There is no excuse to tell someone, "I was angry, so I said it".. no, you have choices on how you respond.  How do I know that??  Because I have lashed out at others in anger, and in the end, it didn't change the situation, however, because of my reaction, MADE IT WORSE.

How do I know I can control anger? Once I learned not to respond, I realized I was in control all along. That's enlightenment. No Straight Jacket Required!

The first learning for me happened this summer.  Sometimes, no action is needed.  However, that is exactly what I did. And it worked out in the end.

And so it began.  "Non responding", was also a coping skill.

We cannot force someone to love us.  Nor force them to do what we hoped they would do.

I don't feel as broken as I did before. Yet, I still struggle.  I still think my interfering could change the course of events. And yes, sometimes I have to talk it through, if even for a moment, so I realize that doing nothing is an always an option. Even typing this blog is an option.

I am just tired of the "I can't control it" YOU ARE NOT POSSESSED!   BROKEN PEOPLE CAN STILL CHANGE HOW WE RESPOND TO SITUATIONS!
