Twelve ways to ACCEPT (Recovery Reading)
1. ACCEPT that I am a sick person,and that help can be found by attending meetings,reading literature,and by practising the programme at all times
2.ACCEPT that I am powerless over anyone,but that I do have the power to change myself.
3.ACCEPT that I am not responsible for anyone’s actions,but I am responsible to myself.
4.ACCEPT God or a Higher Power back into my life.To LETGO AND LET GOD and to learn to have patience by not taking things back too quickly and trying to manage or play God by myself.
5.ACCEPT that I am a good person and that it is ok to be good to myself.Not be afraid to be happy and enjoy what is beautiful.Always remember.I’m OK.GOD DOES”NT MAKE JUNK.
6.ACCEPT tolerance with others especially myself ,having faith that I can grow in our programme and become a whole person again.
7.ACCEPT things I do not like,realizing that all things do NOT have to be good for me to accept them.By having to let someone we love suffer for their own mistakes or actions,by detaching with love.
8.ACCEPT that I do not have to be right all the time and that it is Ok to be wrong or make a mistake.Mistakes can be a learning experience.
9.ACCEPT that it is ok to say I am wrong and to ask forgiveness when I hurt or wrong someone.

11.ACCEPT that each day is a new beginning and that it is within my power to make that day as good and happy as I want it to be.
