I can't control what you do.
I can't control what you think.
I can't control anything.
I can't control how I am perceived.
I can't control how people act towards me.
I can control how I act, how I think.
I can control how I treat others, and how I perceive others.
I don't know how to take the former, and rise above when applying the latter.
How do the steps apply, when my heart hurts, but I wear a smile. I can't control my emotions, but I can control my demeanor.. somehow I don't feel im doing any justice to myself.. obviously, I have failed at alanon. 6 months exactly and I feel like im no better off.
