Today I see that I can safely examine the rules I live by and that I have the power to change them if I want to, in order to promote my own recovery.
Am I still living unconsciously by rules that no longer fit me? In my dysfunctional family, there were many rules that were incongruent and unrealistic.
Today I will look at my rules about love, money, sex, decisions, and emotions. What rules are my choices, and which rules have I unconsciously adopted?
I have the ability to decide which rules work for me, and to discard those that do not.
