When I am afraid,
I will find people to fear.
When I am sensitive to rejection,
I will find people who are rejecting.
When I am angry,
I will find people to blame.
When I am demanding,
I will find people disappointing.
When I am impatient,
I will find people slow to react.
When I am needy,
I will find people unfulfilling.
When I am controlling,
I will find people uncooperative.
When I am hurting,
I will find people hurtful.
When I take full responsibility for my feelings, attitudes, and actions I can stop
When I change myself, I can begin to influence others.
When I search for the truth about myself, I can love and accept others.
Only then can we dwell together in peace.
