    Alcoholics Self Pity And Faith

    My ex husband is going through rehab and called me to be his "support system"...I'm the only person he knows who doesn't drink.Well, I don't hate him, I do support him.  Our divorce was based solely on his "choice" to be a drunk, rather than be a decent husband.  He's not a...

    Be strong people of the world.

    For you are made conquerers. From the ashes of defeat burn the flame of victory. I believe in your ability to believe in yourself. I will not tolerate naysayers. Be strong.

    "Fvck My Life, Nobody Listens To Me"

    There's so much more to do than to always look at ourselves as victims and the rest of humanity, villains. The world doesn't owe us a good life, we owe the world compassion and care. We all have our issues, let's deal with them like grown ups.

    Don't start our conversation by saying stuff

    like "I know I'm ugly but," or "I'm not the smartest,". Just stop. The first step to being confident is acting confident, and thinking positively.

    Saying I am sorry fell on deaf ears not ready

    to hear it. Going on 4years since I left is long enough for me to grieve, recoup myself... My frailties, my strengths and take a big breath and move on. It is one step then the next then the next. I trust people again. That took a while but I did it by choices that are made each...

    Self Pity

    Self-pity is our worst enemy and if we yield to it, we can never do anything wise in this world.
