It's been very hard to stay on top of blogging. Here are some thoughts / emotions about relapse that I want to remember down the road. Just pulling my captions from Instagram. My friend (the one that got me into a 12 step program) relapsed and I've been heartbroken / searching for answers. I know their actions are out of my control but my nurturing spirit wants to help them so much. I feel like I'm looking toward a higher power in a way that I never have before. I'm praying that the universe has their back on this one. And mine. My heart is so broken. I'm happy to be sober though.
1. Tryng to get a good selfie in the sunlight 😑☀️ On a more serious note, what do you guys do when a friend (IRL or from the Instagram community) relapses? I hadn't heard from one of my friends in a few weeks and I kept texting them to no avail. I finally got ahold of them via FB messenger and they said they didn't respond to my text bc they relapsed. It's such a scary and fine line – wanting to support and offer unconditional love but still hoping they can find their way back to sobriety. Not that they aren't deserving of love if they drink but bc they struggle with addiction and you want them to live their best life, without suffering. I'm feeling some feels and just throwing some thoughts out. Xoxo ❤️
2. This has been one of the hardest days I've had in a long time. Still struggling with someone close to me relapsing. I'm not big on prayer and I'm not religious but I am begging the universe to grant my friend some serenity and sobriety. And I'm throwing it out to you guys too - please send some love or prayers or universe vibes. Alcoholism is some terrible shit.
