acquaintances, and others who share your life.

Most of us believe that we have
been betrayed by someone outside of us -
in other words someone has done something to hurt us,
been dishonest or broken a promise made:
some trust in some concept was broken.
Indeed someone may have taken an action
that took only their needs into consideration,
they may have not followed through on a promise made,
and they may have not told you the truth.
But their actions have nothing to do with you
and have everything to do with them.
That's why no one can do anything TO you.
They can take actions that involve you that you may not like -
according to your point of view.
But you are not a victim, no way, no how.
- Sheri Rosenthal

Regrets are the tears of choices not made

... shame says I am a mistake.
Guilt says what did was not good;
... shame says I am no good.
- John Bradshaw

Lighten up! Slow down the shopping.
Your greatest gift to your family and friends is yourself -

of true appreciation in place of store-bought presents.
