I never like hearing those four words. They make me nervous. I heard those words a lot while I was actively drinking. I didn’t receive what people tried to say because I didn’t want to hear it. I didn’t want to know what I did last night. I always knew it was bad. I pretended that if I didn’t know what happened, it didn’t really happen. The anxiety that comes with living this life is unmanageable.
Once I could finally surrender and KNOW that I can’t ever have even one drink I rarely hear those four words. I say them sometimes to my teenager but that’s about it. Life isn’t perfect but tossing alcohol on a fire just makes it get bigger, right?
keep it simple, sisters.
