Sometimes we get to say goodbye and sometimes we don’t.
One thing that really tugs my heart is that the best things in life are FREE and one of those things is CHOICES.
After all, you reap what you sow in life.
It’s such a good feeling when you know you have done your best and a good outcome is your reward. Sadly, it’s not always the case.
Many of us say “we can do it” or “We’re in control”, “I’m an adult”.
Oh and let’s not forget “I can handle it”. But without feeling that worth or confidence in yourself and having a strong-mind, life can be stressful and a complicated mess. I used to think, “I’ll be happy when or if …….”
when in reality we need to choose to be happy first.
When you love and respect yourself others see that in you and treat you with that same respect. People see you are a respected individual and you won’t be treated as a stereotype or just another statistic.
Some circumstances make you feel like you don’t have a choice but only because you dismissed your choice when you accept the conditions that you know can go to the point of no return.
Family bond and the bond of a loved one is so valuable and special.
It’s our lifeline and if you have strong life support then know that you are never alone. But know that the decisions you make will have a domino effect with your loved ones and they hurt with you. You’re not hurting your friends your hurting your loved ones. Don’t drift or wander away from those that love and support you because soon after you will find yourself alone and with no lifeline.
Being a parent these days is so much harder because we’ve lost life values that families always treasure. If you are in any kind of addiction remember your children love you even when they say they don’t… trust me.
There is truth to “love conquers all” and that is meant for every relationship that’s worth fixing. Surround yourselves in love and show love, every chance you can and hopefully, you will keep that bond. Since addiction has a way of breaking that lifeline if it’s not strong.
Sadly, having good life support sometimes is not enough for the one that needs support at the moment. I do understand that battling insecurities and addictions of any kind aren’t easy but if at all possible keep believing in your self-worth.
Believing will keep you grounded when you feel you’re lost. Getting the help you need will make you a better person or parent than you were before because of this experience.
Having the determination to fulfill your goals gets easier when you stop doubting yourself.
Hopefully, 2019 will be the end of a bad choice and for 2020 and forward, I pray for you to make all your decisions with a strong mind, for the right reasons and for the best interest of everyone involved.
My wish for everyone as well as anyone that’s struggling with an addiction and in need of help is that you have a blessed and loving rest of the year, and make this new year a milestone for new beginnings. God Bless you in all your endeavors.
