i place my sadness in the hands of god
Only in feeling my sadness can I learn from it and deepen through it. My sadness is often my teacher, as I learn to outgrow its causes within myself.
I will not anesthetize myself today, or distract myself from the pain of seeing what is difficult to see but important to look at. Rather, I will look with open eyes on the things I have done to attract my sadness, and commit myself to changing them.
Please remove my sadness
By removing its causes.
Reveal to me what I need to see
That I shall be sad no more.
