Thanks so much for your comments on my blog. You can do it! It takes ditching the mentality that says we have to be perfect or else we're not doing it. As long as we keep working on the process, we're doing it! Hugs!
Thanks for the encouragement on school. You'll get an idea the stressor's I'm under after you read today's posting on "Let's Talk". My brother told my mom last night he didn't know why I was going to school because I was never going to go to work because no one would hire a drug addict like me. I have been clean and sober for 11 years. My brother holds a very low opinion of me and he is very unforgiving. He's never once tried to understand my drug addiction or why I became an addict. It's sad, really. I feel sorry for him having no compassion in his heart. He is very critical and closed minded of people. He has no idea I just spent 15 weeks working and they would have hired me in a heartbeat if they had the budget to do so. My brother goes off about me to my mom and she doesn't defend me which is almost like agreeing with him. It hurts me. Sorry to be so negative today. Last night was a real blow. I love your positive, sunny attitude and I need to incorporate more of that into my life. I'm usually upbeat and happy most of the time. Family issues are my Achilles heel. Thanks for being a friend and I hope you have a great end to your week!! Hugs, Lauri
