My Outsides Didn’t Match My Insides

When I was struggling with alcohol, I was almost panicked by the idea that others might see I was struggling. So I did everything I could to keep trying to look good. I figured I didn’t have to change anything as long as no one noticed.

I was so unhappy, and I knew in my heart that booze was at the root of the problem.

It takes courage to change. It takes vulnerability. And humility. These are not my strong suits.

But I finally decided it was ok to let my guard down and ask for help.

One trick I used was imagining one of my kids in the same situation, then imagining them continuing to hide a problem that was really hurting them.

We are all worthy. We are all worth healing.
