If nothing changes, nothing changes.

When the road gets difficult, we can embrace the challenge and think about it as a chance to make ourselves and the world a better place. Or we can look around for someone else to blame. “If so and so hadn’t done such and such, I wouldn’t have relapsed.” Pointing fingers in that way is human nature, but it gets us nowhere fast. Instead of blaming someone else for our problems, maybe we should try something different – accepting the situation as it is and figuring out a plan for moving forward in a successful and productive way. If we don’t take this new and more difficult approach, nothing gets fixed, and nothing gets better.
