DEEP THOUGHT FOR A MONDAY. I used to self medicate. It was my way of coping with who I was and the world that I was in. It was not a healthy way to handle things. I knew it then and I know it now even more. It did serve it’s purpose though and I was able to make it through every day dulled to pain and oblivious to certain realities. Now that I have been clean for a while I am able to make realizations that I was blind to before. I find that it is easier for me to pick out my faults. Before, this would have scared me because I would have no idea of how to continue on in such a flawed manner. Now, I look at it as an opportunity to improve myself. I have learned so much about who I am that I never knew before…either I have changed or I am completely different than I used to view myself…or maybe a bit of both. It has been a very humbling but extremely rewarding experience. I am very thankful to all of you DM friends who have seen me come around over the last 15 months or so. Every day I feel like a stronger human being as I inch closer to the person that I always wanted to be. Hopefully I have given something back. Thanks everyone. Hope everyone is having a good day.
