Remember that it's not your fault

I just watched Oprah Winfrey. She was pregnant at 14 but her baby died. She felt guilty for a long time. At 42, when she was interviewing child molesters, she realized that she was sexually abused and what happened to her was not her fault.

In the same way, I'm realizing that what happened to my family (my father leaving us and voiding his marriage) is not my fault. I'm not guilty, I'm not to be blamed for it. I accept that it has happened and that I would make the best of my circumstances. Acceptance is a lifetime process.
