Three New Graduates in the New Year

Three more graduates! Each are beginning a new awareness for the New Year. In this class we had two women and a guy and we give them all the thumbs up.
Here are a few words from each excerpted fromt their lessons.

First was Janet. She picked three pretty good afirmations to help in her new thought patterns:
    I don't have to answer questions asked of me
    I can respond calmly
    I'm not responsible for fixing other peoples problems.

When she received her certificate she wrote,
Thanks I have been working with this stuff for a while, always looking for a little bit more.  Ever improving. Have taken on board 'bitterness' big time. Major taskŠ. Gather the courage to create the life I wantŠ.. Is my biggest obstacle still, so GREAT BIG THANK YOU!
Our next Graduate was Ronald. He is saddened by his partner's lack of committment and answered this as an example of his idea closure:
We part ways in good terms. No hard feelings. Forgive and forget, to move on. We can only make ourselves happy. Closure with in, for me means you've tried every possible way to make things right. You are left ultimately to make the decision for yourself. You yourself closes and opens yourself to everything.
This is my first experience ever, in a relationship, Im saddened that the reality is that {my partner}, has been abusive all these years, he has been ignoring me for a month now...I feel like I'm the only one at fault.
Our final graduate is Mary. her answer to  "How should you respond to verbal abuse?." was brief but insightful:
Yes, it makes sense that it takes two participants. If you do not accept the behavior, then how will the behavior continue.
Congradualtions in starting the New Year with new ideas of self-respect!
