Choices – In a past significant relationship I felt trapped. I approached every problem with an all or nothing attitude. I didn’t know that I had choices. I just couldn’t see them. This book, “Discovering Choices” is a gem. Reading this book and answering the questions at the end of each chapter has helped me to know myself better, to grow as a person, and to see more choices where I thought I had none.
Some quotes from this book that I found helpful:
- “Recovery means that I can be happy today if I choose to be.” Page 27
- “The greatest obstacle to letting go is the persistent belief that we have the power to change someone else.” Page 149
- “When we focus on a future we can’t know, we prevent ourselves from knowing the satisfactions that the present day could offer.” Page 151
Today I know that I have choices in any situation. For that I am grateful.
