Good morning! My name is Lauren and I'm a recovering alcoholic/addict. I have come to learn that I am courageous in standing up for what I believe in and being open about speaking. But what I really need to work on is just being quiet and listening. Sometimes I get so caught up in telling my story, I don't be quiet and listen to others. That is one thing I am continuously working on. I have always been a good talker, but really need to slow down, be patient, and listen to others. Sometimes, just listening is all someone needs. They don't want to hear me ramble on about my problems. They just want someone to listen to theirs. Maybe just someone to hear what's going on in their lives. Maybe them speaking it out in words, instead on just in their head, may make more sense once the words come out. So today I will be still, sit down and listen. Have a great day!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
