“One of the things with falling down is that you get reminded of how horrific greed is, and I can tell you that compared with reciprocity, greed is dark, destructive and repetitive.” Greed uses me like an animal. I am a beast with no reason, no limits, no standards. My impossible appetite chains down the humanity of my being. I don’t want to be just a “dumb” animal acting abominably because I lack sensitivity or conscience. How can an ass be taught? 13 months ago

I have wanted others to be different than they actually are, to be more kind, more in tune with my thoughts and needs, to serve me, to conform to me. What I ask of others I must ask from myself. If I ask you to be different, I open the door to you asking me to be different. This is a hard thing to SEE much less to let go of. I will continue to notice how I am expecting things of others contrary to their own best interest. I will also work on not thinking I am the center of the universe. In this way I will stop bending myself to get my needs met. 15 months ago

I always thought I was true to myself….but I have got myself in a situation where I am not being true to myself and it is eating me up on a much too regular basis!
I have allowed someone into my life who I pretty much dispise in many ways, from her morals to parenting skills – I have stuck to it because of the group of friends she is in. I honestly thought I could hack it but the more I spend time with her the more I detest the situation.
I am not the only one who feels like this and usually I would be fine to say when I don’t agree with her – but not only do I never get the chance – whenever I have it hasn’t been taken on board.
The only thing is…..one of the other girls in the group feels exactly the same way I do…..but has said not to say anything as it would be difficult for the group but she doesn’t seem to see how difficult it has become for me. I am now in the position that I know I have to not spend time with her because whT she is doing at the moment is illegal and I would have to say something – but I am at risk of losing friends because it would be made difficult for everyone else – so, to be true to myself…....
I am going to be friends with people who want to be my friend and where I want to be theirs!! I want to feel I can have open conversations And stand true to what I believe in with like minded people! 21 months ago
