Getting better is all about finding behaviors more appropriate to life outside abuse and becoming accomplished at those behaviors. That reminded me today of this one.

"We learn by doing." Admiral James T Kirk

"There are so many contridictions
In all these messages we send
(We keep asking)
How do I get out of here
Where do I fit in?
Though the world is torn and shaken
Even if your heart is breakin'
It's waiting for you to awaken
And someday you will-
Learn to be still
Learn to be still
You just keep on runnin'
Keep on runnin"

"If there is any hope for the future, it surely must rest upon the ability to stare unflinchingly into the heart of darkness."
— unknown

"It is better to deserve honours and not have them, than to have them and not to deserve them."
— Mark Twain

"If I had a formula for bypassing trouble, I would not pass it round. Trouble creates a capacity to handle it. I don’t embrace trouble; that’s as bad as treating it as an enemy. But I do say meet it as a friend, for you’ll see a lot of it and had better be on speaking terms with it."
— Oliver Wendell Holmes

"Act the way you’d like to be, and soon you’ll be the way you act."
— Kerr Cuhulain, from Full Contact Magick (p. 107)

"One’s dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but cannot be taken away until it is surrendered."
— Michael J. Fox

"But there’s another piece of me. The part that’s with my family. The family I chose; the family that chose me. I feel everything that hurts them, or makes them sad. I wouldn’t just kill for them; I’d die for them. They’re all I have. They’re everything I have. And what they give me is . . . that piece of myself that’s clean."
— Burke, from Pain Management by Andrew Vachss

"You must do the thing you think you cannot do."
— Eleanor Roosevelt, from You Learn by Living

"Don’t eye the top of the ladder, eye the next rung."
— Gen. Colin Powell

"There is nothing noble in being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self."
— Hindustani proverb

This next one may be a bit controversial, but I do think it fits here.
"The only way a (parasitic individual) could return after being got rid of was through pity. The same is true of any type of evil. Feeling sorry for people who are engaged in wrong action does nobody any good."
— Anderson Reed, from Shouting at the Wolf (p. 41)

"In all forms of warfare the loser is beaten in spirit before he is beaten in fact."
— David J. Rogers

"The human body has an amazing ability to cope with arduous situations and testing environments. People who have come through, after enduring terrible hardship under seemingly impossible conditions, are a living proof of this."
— John Wiseman

"Succeed in not fearing the lion, and the lion will fear you."
— Eliphas Levi

"Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it."
— Helen Keller

This next one makes me think about abuse. Though I would perhaps subsitute the word evil for mistakes in that case.
"There are mistakes too monstrous for remorse . . ."
— Edwin Arlington Robinson

"Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family. Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one."
— Jane Howard, from Families

"Human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind."
— William James

And one last one. I got these all off of one website, but only picked out a fraction that I felt would fit. or could fit depending on the person.
"Self-respect has nothing to do with the approval of others."
— Joan Didion

"To help is to heal, to hurt is to steal
If you wanna kiss the sky, you better learn how to kneel."

Thought about writing Bono's next lyric but....I'm embarassed to say that it's a trigger for me. But I still like the song and I still LOVE the thought behind this lyric.

Peace and love,

Scot
