05-01: Fuggedaboutit


We are all instantly forgiven; but in order to benefit from this forgiveness, we must in turn forgive others and ourselves. ~Author Unknown~

The inability to forgive will steal the very essence of life from you, if you allow it to.  It is not the individual that it is being obsessed over that is held captive by it, but you instead.  Carry forgiveness in your heart, and leave the past behind.  Once you are able to let go of the offenses, real or imagined, of those who you carry resentment towards, a whole new world will open up to you…a world of Peace.

Thought of the day
It is said that those who hold resentments are guilty of regularly drinking the poison they are intending for someone else.  The Big Book is very clear about the power of a resentment stating that “nothing will lead an alcoholic back to a drink quicker than an undealt with resentment.”
Tony Soprano of The Sopranos fame has left us with a very important piece of advice.  Can you fuggedaboutit?

Then Peter came up to Him and said, Lord, how many times may my brother sin against me and I forgive him and let it go?  {As many as} up to seven times?  Jesus answered him, I tell you, not up to seven times, but seventy times seven!
~Matthew 18:21,22 (Amp)~

And Jesus prayed, Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do…
~Luke 23:34~

And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive him and let it drop (leave it, let it go), in order that your Father Who is in heaven may also forgive you your [own] failings and shortcomings and let them drop.  But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive your failings and shortcomings. ~Mark 11:25,26 (Amp)~

“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged.  Do not condemn others, or it will all come back against you.  Forgive others, and you will be forgiven.  Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.” ~Jesus (Luke 6:37,38)~


About SLAA Tilburg

Wat is seks- en liefdeverslaving? Wij in S.L.A.A. geloven dat seks- en liefdeverslaving een voortschrijdende ziekte is, die niet kan worden genezen maar die, zoals veel ziekten, wel tot staan kan worden gebracht. Zij kan verschillende vormen aannemen – inclusief (maar niet beperkt tot) een dwangmatige behoefte aan seks, extreme afhankelijkheid van één persoon (of meerdere personen), en/of een voortdurend in beslag genomen worden door romantiek, affaires of fantasieën. Er is sprake van een obsessief-dwangmatig patroon, seksueel of emotioneel (of beide), waarin relaties of seksuele activiteiten in toenemende mate destructief geworden zijn voor de loopbaan, het gezinsleven en het gevoel van zelfrespect. Als seks- en liefdeverslaving wordt veronachtzaamd, wordt zij altijd erger. Wanneer wij echter een eenvoudig programma volgen dat voor een reeks van mannen en vrouwen met dezelfde ziekte succesvol is gebleken, kunnen wij herstellen. In S.L.A.A. leren wij de realiteit te accepteren dat wij deze verslaving hebben
