1297 days Clean & Sober
Good morning! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful, recovering, alcoholic/addict. God made me just the way I am, and no one else like me. He even made my twin brothers, who can be so alike...so different. No two people are the same. So why try to be like someone else. Be you! Quit comparing yourself to someone else. I know it's hard, we all wish for something different. We want curly hair if ours is straight. We want to be taller if we are short, but we are just the way we are supposed to be. I used to be really skinny and I wished I were bigger, well look at me now, I'm bigger. Now I wish I I were skinnier. I have learned to just be happy with who I am. Since I got sober I have struggled with my weight, I have tried diets, and working out, now I;m in constant pain so I can't work out. Maybe this is God saying, quit trying to be who you aren't. Just be happy with who you are today!!! Quit trying to be who you were 15 years ago, or whatever, be who you are today, and be happy with it. If you are overweight and want to lose some weight, that's fine, but still be happy with yourself today. If you are just getting sober and want to be sober for 5 years, just be happy with your sobriety today. That's all I have for today. Have a great day! God Bless!

Happiness is supposed to be a personal thing, that's why we should never let other people affect it. When we are young and do not have the right idea of happiness, we tend to be so much dependent to other people that already have a hold on what we feel. I guess, we should never depend our happiness to other people because it could lead to frustration afterwards. You should learn how to be happy without depending it to other people. I know it may sound shallow, but that's the right thing to do.
