Good morning! My name is Lauren and I'm a recovering alcoholic/addict. Yesterday, I talked about crying out for help. It's along that same line today. Life can seem so dark at times, like the pain will never end. I feel like I'm going the wrong way. I have taken so many wrong turns. There is no way life could get better. I've made so many mistakes. There is no hope. I have all these thoughts running through my head. But I need to stop and think a second, and look forward. I can only go forward to the light. If I turn around, it will only stay dark. I have to keep moving though, toward the light. Things will get better, I don't have to stay stuck in my own misery. But if I sit here in the dark, and don't move at all, it will never get better. I have to put one foot in front of the other to get somewhere. There is an acronym for HOPE. Hang On Pain Ends. It can only stay dark for so long. There is another little quote I like "If there's no light at the end of the tunnel, march on down there and turn it on yourself." -Patricia Morse. The light doesn' just happen, you have to go towards it. Here's a little poem I wrote.
The rain is cold and dreary, yes,
But soon the storm is done.
The cold dark night surrounds me now,
yet the warmth of the sun is soon to come.
So keep your head up, and keep on keeping on. Have a great day!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
