I write and speak about the fact that nothing outside of us is responsible for who and what we've become.
What is also true is that nothing outside of us can fix us.
The answers are within. Every person who has ever healed or recovered has experienced an event which took place solely within, between them and God, which is one.
If there is one thing I impress upon anybody, it's that nothing outside of us can fix us. No person, place, pill, book, therapist, doctor, self-help antic... no worldly thing at all. Even if we want to blame something else for who and what we've become, which is delusional, that's not nearly as important as realizing that only us and God can elicit real, effective, lasting change.
It is only we who fail ourselves. It is only we who refuse to take action. If we continue to blame some person or medication or institution for failing us, then we need to think again, but this time within the bounds of reality.
