“There is a place in our hearts that will put us on the right course with people and ourselves. That place is willingness
to make amends, willingness to achieve healing in our relationships with people, and willingness to find the gift.
When we achieve that place, when the idea of willingness begins to enter our minds, even before it has worked its way down into our hearts, it’s already beginning to happen. We are beginning to open ourselves to the reparation, healing, and love available to us in our relationships. We are ready to begin to love ourselves, and others, unconditionally….we become willing to love and take care of ourselves.”
