A Different Life

it is always darkest just before the dawn breaks

I need a new life, a different life from the emotionally painful existence I have been enduring.

I don’t exactly know what kind of life I need to live, except that I need to stay sober and avoid all conflict in my interpersonal relationships.  Maybe the one will lead to the other.  I hope so.

There is nothing I ask for, other than to be free from this emotional pain and suffering.  There is nothing I can think of to do, no plan of action other than to stay sober, avoid all conflict, and maybe just be nice, kind, and compassionate.  To be honest, that’s about all I’m going to be able to cope with for a while.

Love to you all.  Wish me luck in my different life.

Maybe having a true friend would be good for me.

  2. Good wishes for a fresh start! I too have given up drinking and dating because that’s just a carousel of misery for me, even though it seems to work fine for some people. We’re just not them! And remember the cliche… one day at a time. Each day be good to yourself and make healthy choices. 💖✨🙂

    1. I have hit absolute rock bottom, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually ~ and it’s been a carousel of misery for me too. Right now it’s just one hour at a time for me. At least I’m clean, shaved, and I’ve eaten something. Be good to yourself too Paula. 🌹❤💞

  3. To have a true friend, one must be a true friend.
    Perhaps you begin with yourself and once you’re getting good at that, you try it on others.
    May you be bathed in healing light.
