The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom
I decided to dig out another book from my library this month and it happened to be this one. I don’t think I’ve picked it up other than to pack for a move in the past 15 years. I’m glad I picked it up.
It reaffirmed so much of what I’ve come to accept the past few years:
1. I can’t blame others for how they treated me. I’m responsible for the intolerable behavior of others.
2. I am responsible for my own thoughts, emotions and action (see above).
3. People’s POVs are based on their experiences. I am not responsible (however, I do want to be respectful of that POV).
4. Being authentic with yourself gives you the power to be authentic with those around you.
All things I knew and forgot during my narcissistic abusive relationship.
All things I needed to relearn as I healed from that relationship.
Good reading that encourages a lot of reflection.
