I’m a 31 year old woman who’s beautiful son calls her mom and wonderful friends and family call her hilarious and outgoing …up until a few months ago I just called myself hopeless. I have a huge heart and want to give it to everyone all at the same time. I just always seem to lose focus on the most important part. ME.
After losing my father to drug addiction, my whole life suddenly became consumed with addiction to everything negative. Addiction to toxic love. Addiction to alcohol. Addiction to drugs. Addiction to making myself feel bad about it all. I became so wrapped up in the guilt of not being able to please anyone, I lost myself to all of it.
It’s easy to put the blame on all of these people that kept taking. The reality is, I allowed them to. By simply saying NO to everyone else, I was able to say YES to me.
YES to my happiness.
YES to my sobriety.
Yes to my self worth.
YES to my power.
