Live for Life
You should live for the moments in life where you feel like everything will be alright for once. It is the carefree moments that really make life enjoyable; where happiness and pleasure are not forced. It is those carefree moments that are waiting for you to overcome your addiction.
Idealism is thinking – why can everyone not be selfish and try helping people more often? People who think negatively do not realize the obvious:
nothing is impossible – not even overcoming addiction.
If you want to make a difference, do not ignore your longing for a better life because you do not think change is possible. Spread your wings and fly because this is your opportunity to live again. Life is not something that just happens the way you want it to, and problems do not get solved automatically. Addiction is a problem you need to fight and solve with time and help.
Heal from Within
Emotional scars are the worst, but with every scar will come a lesson. Learning that lesson is entirely up to you, however. The road to recovery is not easy to walk, but in the end it is more than worth it. Life is full of taking chances, and for once the chance you take could benefit you in ways you cannot imagine. Do not get angry at yourself for being in the place you are in because it will get you nowhere. Be happy you have experienced what you have – even your addiction – because it has helped mold you into the brave and strong person you will be after walking the road of recovery.
You are not alone: this is an important thing to remember.
Find support in your friends, family, people who have gone through the same thing, and most importantly – find support in you. The carefree moments in life are waiting for you. Someday you will be able to look back on your time struggling with addiction and smile because you were brave enough to overcome it and stay sober. You will be celebrating 20 years of being sober, and that happiness will be incomparable.
There is always a good side to things, you just need to find it; whether it be obvious or hiding. Even if the good side is smaller than the bad side, it is still there. If you keep hanging onto it long enough, in the end it will pull you through. The good side is always there; sometimes you just need to find it. Maybe it is obvious. Maybe it is hiding. Even if, right now, the good is smaller than the bad, at least it is still there. At least it has the potential to grow stronger. If you keep holding onto that good side, eventually it will grow strong enough and pull you through.
