Good morning! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful recovering alcoholic/addict. Asking for help is one of the hardest thing to do. Sometimes we know we need help, but are too afraid to ask. Katrina Mayer said, "I'm courageous enough to know I can accomplish great things. I'm humble enough to know when to ask for help." That is so true. Asking for help is not a sign for weakness. It shows that you know you can do it, but need a hand to hold. Anything is easier when someone, a friend or God, is there by your side. Even if they aren't doing anything or saying anything, you know you are not alone. Life can be scary sometimes, but you always have a friend to stand with if you just ask. Maybe that person was too afraid to ask you. And you just helped them too without even knowing it. Here is a little poem I wrote.
I love how you don't judge me.
You have been in my shoes.
You were always there to listen.
When I had nothing to lose.
I live like there's no tomorrow.
I enjoy every moment alive.
You've taught me to be happy.
I feel so revived.
So thank you for always being there.
And extending out your hand.
To help me up when I fell down.
And hold me steady when I stand.
Don't forget a do have a book out, that all these and more, poems are in. It is called "From the Weeds." Let me know if you are interested in a signed copy! Have a great day!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
