    Were entirely ready to have remove all these defects of character.

    We must be open to becoming changed by a Power greater than ourselves - God.
    The path to this willingness can be long and hard. Many of us have to struggle with a behavior or feeling before we become ready to let it go. We need to see, over and over again, that the coping device that once protected us is no longer useful.
    The defects of character are old survival behaviors that once helped us cope with people, life, and ourselves. But now they are getting in our way, and it is time to be willing to have them removed.
    Trust in this time. Trust that you are being readied to let go of that which is no longer useful. Trust that a change of heart is being worked out in you.

    God, help me become ready to let go of my defects of character. Help me know, in my mind and soul, that I am ready to let go of my self-defeating behaviours, the blocks and barriers to my life.

    Have a great day!

    If only my FM/CFS would disappear as fast as a character defect life would be so much better.

    That post sounds so familiar. Isn't it from AA?

    I'm not so sure you were inspired??

    These are encouraging words from a meditation series that I read and is what helps me get through.
