I am in charge of my world
When I was a child, I had no power. When I spoke, no one heard me. My voice was too weak and tentative to have an effect. Even though I'm an adult now, I still feel powerless to affect change at times.
I wasn't in charge of my world when I was a child but I can take charge of my inner world now. Using the power of my imagination, I can return to my childhood and heal the wounds that still fester.
In my mind, I can take the hand of my inner child and explore past hurts. I stand by my inner child, providing strong support. When someone hurts my child, I speak up with conviction. I can see situations clearly now. I take charge of myself and my child as I make peace with my own personal history.
Today I have the power to affect change within myself. This is what recovery is all about.
