I’m realizing how I take out my frustration on myself physically. I slam my fist down. I’ve slammed down mousses and broken them. Today I hurt my Karate Chop point. Why? Because I was frustrated---people not getting back to me, not enough money to have a faster internet connection, the incessant rain--- and so my excuses go.
KC: Even though I’m frustrated and my habit is to take it out on myself. I acknowledge the struggle and love myself anyway.
KC: Even though my self-destructive habit is now to physically hurt myself. I honor how I am changing and love myself.
KC: Even though I’m not binging on food or cussing at myself I’m still abusive to myself and I know that the best way to change that is to love myself.

UN: Poor me
CH: That’s right
CB: But I contracted to go it alone this time until I got the lesson
UA: I’m getting the lesson
TH: I hope I’m getting the lesson
EB: I don’t want to hurt myself anymore
SE: I don’t need to punish myself like others punished me
UE: I don’t have to isolate anymore
UN: That’s why I’m moving to be around people I know
CH: Silly Goose--- laugh at yourself when you get frustrated and slip
CB: It’s not the computers fault
UA: Other people have their own agendas and they are here to test you
TH: To show you how to relax and breathe
EB: its okay
SE: Slow and steady wins the race
UE: Be gentle with yourself
UN: Love yourself when you slip
CH: You are doing a great job
CB: You’ve overcome so many old habits
UA: This is just another one to conquer
TH: its okay--- you are worthy of love no matter what you do
Breathe in through the nose and out through the mouth- ahhhh
CB: Even if I don’t feel worthy I am—worthy of love and forgiveness
