CoDA Weekly Reading 3/28/17

From: "CoDA Weekly Reading" <>
Date: March 28th 2017
I have been in our CoDA group for a year and have journaled throughout the meetings. 
I wanted to share some of my favorite quotes from the meetings:


•        Believe in your Higher Power and act like it.
•        What other people think of me doesn't matter.
•        I can accept that certain relationships aren't good for me.
•        You can't fix anyone but yourself.
•        It's okay to take care of yourself.
•        You can't make a cake and expect a pie.
•        Other people walk off with my happiness and I am miserable.
•        It is exhausting thinking you are to blame for everything.
•        Figure it out is not a step.
•        I can trust that others can take care of themselves.
•        What is stopping me from taking care of myself?
•        EGO stands for Edge God Out.
•        God is the pilot, I am the co-pilot.
•        I don't know what the future holds, but I hold the future.
•        Live a prayer, don't say a prayer.
•        When you can't let it go, leave it be.
•        I traded being loved for being needed.
•        The person that I've harmed most is myself.
•        With pain comes strength.
•        God has never abandoned me.
•        Whether we make ourselves happy or miserable, the amount of work is the same.
•        Take what you like and leave the rest.
