A Recovery Story: Jake Taylor

“No matter how unreasonable others may seem, I am responsible for not reacting negatively. Regardless of what is happening around me I will always have the prerogative and responsibility, of what happens within me. I am the creator of my own reality. When I review my day, I know that I must stop judging others. If I judge others, I am probably judging myself. Whoever is upsetting me most is my best teacher. I have so much to learn from him or her, and in my hearts, I should thank that person.”
