Who said anything about abandoning?
I won’t lie to you. My effort to stop taking another person’s inventory in order to help them (make them see things my way) has been a long, hard battle. I have tried to follow the steps, attend meetings, even posted self-help articles. Still, because of my need to “fix” I struggle when it comes to the detaching with love part of the program.
When this happens, I look at my DNA – Detach Not Abandon guidelines.
The good news is in the process, I am becoming more aware of my control issues. In letting go and letting God, I have freed myself from baseless guilt. Focusing on my own inventory has altered my DNA, and helped me Discover New Alternatives, by restoring my dignity.
