257 Abuse of Power

257 Abuse of Power

I sponsor people who are dealing with people who abuse the power given them. The problem is compounded by the power the victims give the abuser. I pray that I am more helpful by teaching the victims to forgive and love those abusers. The victims should not try to approve of or like the abuser, but to love them by praying that they become the individual our Higher Power created them as. To forgive them is to disempower them. The victims need to stop giving the power to determine their worth to the abusers. Last night my denial broke down watching TV about how others abuse the power given them. Realizing how I am taking it personally giving them my power out of my powerlessness. This morning my reading in the 12 and 12 was on Step Ten. "It is a spiritual axiom that every time we are disturbed, no matter what the cause, there is something wrong with us." what's wrong with me? I too am giving my power to the abusers. What would my greatest Hero do? "Forgive them for they know not what they do." Which road will I take? I choose the road less traveled. I am willing to walk my talk, to teach only love and forgiveness. I see how powerlessness we are walking alone and unaided. I do not have clean hands but I know where to go to wash them. I realize I may have to return again and again until I am in that Divine Union I long for. Thy Love/Will be done
