12 Ways To Acceptance

  1. ACCEPT, that I am a sick person, and need help and that help can be found by attending meetings, reading literature and by practicing the program at all times.
  2. ACCEPT, that I am powerless over anyone, but that I do have the power to change myself.
  3. ACCEPT, that I am not responsible for everyone’s actions, but I am responsible to myself.
  4. ACCEPT, G-d or a Higher Power back into my life. To LET GO AND LET G-D, and to learn to have patience by not taking things back too quickly and trying to manage or play God myself.
  5. ACCEPT, that I am a good person, and it is OK to be good to myself. Don’t be afraid to be happy and enjoy what is beautiful. Always remember, I’m OK, G-D DOESN’T MAKE JUNK.
  6. ACCEPT, tolerance with others and especially myself, having faith that I can grow in our program and become a whole person again.
  7. ACCEPT, things I do not like, realizing that all things do not have good to be acceptable. By having to let someone we love suffer for their own mistakes, or actions, by detaching with love.
  8. ACCEPT, that I do not have to be right all the time and that it is OK to be wrong or make mistake, our mistakes can be a learning experience.
  9. ACCEPT, that it is OK to say I’m wrong and ask forgiveness when I hurt or wrong someone.
  10. ACCEPT, that I must be open-minded enough to listen thoughtfully to the opinions of others.
  11. ACCEPT, that each day is a new beginning and that it is within my power to make that day as good and happy as I want it to be.
  12. ACCEPT, that I have no control over the PAST. That TOMORROW is beyond our immediate control for it is yet unborn. This leaves only TODAY. Let us therefore live but ONE DAY AT A TIME!
