I am not responsible for anyone else’s happiness.

I am not responsible for anyone else’s recovery.

I am not responsible for anyone else’s behavior, choices, or mental health.

I am not responsible for anyone else’s financial well-being, living conditions, or eating habits.

I am not responsible for anyone else’s spiritual condition.

I AM responsible for:

  • My happiness
  • My recovery
  • My behavior
  • My choices
  • My mental health
  • My financial well-being
  • My living conditions
  • My eating habits
  • My spiritual condition
  • My physical health

I am responsible for how I treat others and for my reaction to how they treat me. 

And I am responsible for asking for help when I need it need.  Only when I need it.  

I’m keeping my side of the street clean. Are you cleaning yours?



I write about my life, my journey, my family, and my faith. I am wife to one, mom to seven with one in heaven, and grandmother to many. I am also full-time caregiver to my stepmom E who suffers from dementia due to Alzheimer’s. In my spare time I like to read, travel, crochet, bike, and play with our black pug Molly.
