My name is Daria and I am.... Believer
Today I went to Anonymous Alcoholics for very first time. No, I have no problem with alcohol or drugs or something else.
Ya-ya, all addicted say that they have no any problem and can stop in any moment.
But it is really not my case. I went there just to support one friend of mine. I sat in the corner, looked into this friendly faces, listen about their stories. I got to know them in person. Was surprised how "normal" they are and how big their hearts.
Topic of the meeting was "Gratefulness".
Everyone told what he/she grateful for and added some touching story from past or present time. Someone was crying. Someone was laughing.
I listen all this stories and tried to recognise what I AM grateful for? What I will say when I will have chance to say something. This thought took all evening and way to home.
And I found it out.
I am grateful that I can ask about help. I can raise my voice and said "I NEED HELP".
And I am very thankful that in time when I trusted to tell it, next to me was people what supported and helped me.
You cannot imagine, but just to realize that you have a problem, took a decision to ask about help and spell this 3 words loud it is like a superpower.
Plenty people have too low self worth or too big ego to do it and endet up in best case in hospital. In worse case on a bottom from where way out is almost no possible because life already completely destroyed, including relation with friends and family.
I am not telling now only about drugs and alcohol. It could be depression, game addiction, shopaholism, whatever that suppose to ruin your life if not right now, than in future.
Dear You, who read it right now, please, open your eyes, be honest with you, look with this opened honest eyes on your current life and pointed out that your life is awesome and be grateful for that and proud of yourself or confess that you have problem, go to people that you can trust and say "I NEED HELP". Be brave. Turn your life in better way. Bekomme a superhero. Be sure that it is never too late, but then earlier you start then easier will be to get your life back.
With believe that you can,
