I’m still learning how.
It has taken a long time and I’m not all the way there yet. I’ve mostly let go of the anger and blame that has hurt me and held me back for so many years. I still occasionally get angry without knowing why but I no longer go looking for it.
I no longer blame things on outside forces. I own my errors and shortcomings, no one else. No more if only my parents … Or if my ex-wife hadn’t … Or why didn’t my union or my employer …
Things happened to me but I can’t let them shape me any longer. I have set myself free.
My wife is starting to trust me again. I am starting to trust myself too.
I also own my own happiness. It feels good.
