Could it be that we want everything to be perfect, that we expect more from people other than the same drama that fills the rest of the year? I know I do. I'm so exhausted from putting myself out to help those who have no intension on helping themselves, yet for me it's family and my heart aches because I care. Being the youngest of 6 and pushing 50 I feel like I'm falling apart trying to keep others together for the sake of our mother. I want to know when it became ok for some to be so selfish, to not have a care in the world as to what their selfishness and the destruction of the very life they've been given does to those who love and care about them?
Addiction is a killer! It doesn't matter to what, it destroys everything! relationships, trust, health, self esteem, family, everything and anything that could have been wonderful. It takes all that is good inside a person and trashes it. No one ever said that life was easy, everybody makes mistakes, but when is enough enough? Why is it that one can be given so many opportunities time and time again to change the bad choices to good and they still choose the bad? I will never understand what ticks inside certain people that they can't appreciate anything, including the gift of life itself, or how they can single handedly destroy themselves having absolutely no regard for the others in their life.
All I can say is that I pray they will find the strength to overcome the sickness and know that they are loved.
