Writing out things are a part of recognition of getting through or past many important situation in your life.
examples:

I can and will accept surviving the loss of my spouse to cancer.
I can and will accept having been a victim of domestic abuse.

It is a great exercise in acceptance and forgiveness to yourself for things that have happened in your life.
If you don’t air it here, sit down in private and write them to yourself.

I can and will accept that I am an idiot who has always allowed (certain) people to make a fool of me, however I have learned (over the years) that most people do NOT act like this, most people are not users so I’m trying to avoid the ones who are.

1) Anything legal tender or that can be easily liquidated for enough to be worth the effort.
2) Burritos. Yeah, I can buy my own, but sometimes it’s best to skip the middle-man and just get handed a burrito.

@partyparty I don’t so much avoid them honey, as I had to cut them out of my life after around 30 years of being “friends”. I know that if I was in their company they would act the way they always had, and so would I, and I’d be right back to being an idiot who lets people steal from me and generally con me again. I was raised to believe that if you weren’t willing to share, you didn’t deserve to have those things to start with, which till my grave I will always believe, but I ended up being friends with a few people who, no matter how much you would give, always wanted more from you, even if they had to steal it. It’s not a healthy situation to live in. It wears a person down. I have to accept that I am a person users will always use, but I do have the comfort that these people, while they do exist (such as my ex friends), they are a tiny,tiny, tiny minority. The vast majority of people I have met are lovely. I said elsewhere on fluther recently that even some “nippy sweeties” I have met through work or whatever, if given the chance, do turn out to be more sweetie than nippy.
huggles always honey xx

@shpadoinkle_sue that’s simply not true honey, you are a lovely, sweet, interesting person and I always look forward to seeing your posts, you couldn’t make anyone miserable if you put your whole heart and soul into the endeavor, you’re far too friendly, affectionate and downright lovely a person. <hugs tightly> xx

Today, I can and I will accept that I am trying to move forward and forget about my “past” insecurities when it comes to the heart. I have a wonderful person in my life that i want to keep close to my heart. Today, I can and I will accept that this special person in my life is being honest and truthful with his feelings. Today, I can and I will accept my insecure feelings but that these feelings are “past” insecurities only! They are NOT present insecurities! Today, I will work hard at letting go of these “past” insecurities so that I may move forward with this special person in my life and I know that he feels the same way about me as I feel about him.
