I must admit i would either be dead or in prison if not for the place my ex wife had in my life. But in giving this tribute am I under rating my role in turning things around?

everyone has to save themselves, nobody can do it for you. the only thing someone else CAN do is give the motivation to do so.
either by actively be a part of the "saving" or by just giving you a reason for wanting to be a better person for her/him.
But ultimately, if someone doesn't want to be saved, there is nothing anyone can do to change your mind. This has to happen within first.
The mind is a powerful tool, it can get you ahead and it can drag you down. Important is which side you choose and the decisions you make from there on.1
