With these letters, my impulses toward self-pity, retaliation, and revenge are swept away. I see that a “victim's mentality” is the foundation of all those feelings. I replace that thinking with the understanding that I am the creator of my own change. Thus everything changes now! All of the feelings of self-pity, victimhood and hopes of retaliation are vanishing, as I accept the consequences of my own actions. I take responsibility for where I am, and know that if I want to change my circumstances, it is within my control. I am proactive, and achieve my own fulfillment. I am letting go of pain, and regaining control over my life.
