When you actually take a moment, whether it’s stepping out of the storm, or leaving it behind all together, you may realize you have to learn a new dance. Our loved one is not the same person you met years ago; addiction has changed them. Whether it’s a partner, child, sibling, or friend, it’s time to get to know this new person, and leave the past behind. At the same time, it’s time to get to know the new you. You as well, have changed. What you’ve been through is messy and ugly, but can be beautiful at the same time- with new beginnings, new relationships, and new pieces of yourself you never knew existed.
We may find our greatest traumas and tragedies have become our greatest gifts to give back.
Stepping into acceptance that this is your new journey, and embracing the truth of who we are, are important milestones. This can be a difficult task for some. Therefore, identifying your emotions, and walking through them, are crucial. This can be scary, but liberating, at the same time. Remember there is no roadmap.The only way we get to keep our blessings is by giving them away. These messy moments can turn beautiful- isn’t that what you call life?
