Our Folded Hands

Women helping Women. Reaching out to the Sister who still suffers. Helping each other through the Good times and the Difficult times. To get to the SOBER way of life, One Day at a Time.


Obstinacy in a bad cause is but constancy in a good.
—Sir Thomas Browne—

Faults, when their closely examined, often turn out to be the other end of virtues. Carelessness in one situation might be generosity in another; secretiveness might turn out to be an expression of tact. In most of us, positive and negative photographic prints. The way we see the image depends on the situation and the lights.
Quickness to anger can also mean quickness to forgive, to understand, or to move quickly in emergencies. A slow reaction time may go along with thoughtful caution. Understanding of ourselves will grow when we come to see ourselves along a continuum, where the traits that hold us back in one situation may be advantages in another. As we understand ourselves, we learn to love ourselves better, as we deserve.
Today I will look at my behavior to see whether a fault I don’t like about myself might not be the other end of an asset.
