6 I am very pleased that my mind keeps opening! I did not realise how closed it was.
8 NOOOOOO!!! Need to do that......
9 The alcoholic is far out of my life. I still from time to time interfere in his relationship with the children--trying to help them all. I think that I need to let him figure it out himself.
I do need to apply this principle better with my own children--not in an alcoholic situation, but to stop doing for them what they can and should do for themselves.
10 I try. It is getting better as I keep getting better. This is one of the more sad acceptances for me. As I have healed, I realise just how emotionally distant I had been for a very long time. I am eternally grateful for this programme and the chance to be better and healthier and develop a better relationship with my kids.
