Understand this, a lot of people have been on this road way before you came on. Ever taken some time out to look at their lives and try to see the similarities you share? Just for a second forget about the fact that they battle with addiction just like you, that seems to be the first thing that comes to mind when you want to come up with a similarity but that’s not it. A lot of things could trigger addiction.
Abandonment issues, abuse, verbal and sexual abuse, harrassment, nutrition problems, family problems. A lot of reasons could trigger addiction and if you went down that road. We don’t blame you for doing that. Nobody blames you for doing that so you need to stop blaming yourself.
Instead take all of that anger, all of that resentment and channel it into being a better you. You’re being a better you for yourself! Yes, this life is pretty hard and difficult snd sometimes a lot of people just want to tune it off. But you being here, you still being alive to read this piece shows that you’re one very special human being! It shows that you’re important to the universe and there is still so much greatness in you that would be birthed out!
I want to encourage you to cry. Sounds very odd right? But yes, cry. I want you to feel all the emotions that you need to. I want you to remember that you’re only human and you’re not perfect and you’re prone to make mistakes. But want to know the most amazing thing? These mistakes you have made do not define you. Just because a vase is broken doesn’t mean it should be thrown away. You can take that vase and make it into an unusual and beautiful masterpiece. That’s what you are. You are that masterpiece. You need to start envisioning yourself in that manner. You are worth it. You always have been and you always will be.
I want to commend you for deciding to go on this journey and I want to encourage you that no matter how difficult and lonely this road could get; you are a masterpiece. You carry greatness and the world needs to see you in all your glory. I’m rooting for you. Always.
