What would you do when you see someone you love falling into a pit-hole? Would you do all you can to pick them up or walk away after trying your best to convince them not to fall in the first place?
Everyone is different. Some are more independent and strong-minded while others depend on others for every aspects of their lives. As a young girl, I learned not to depend on anyone for anything. Till this day, I hardly ask for help or rely on anyone or anything. Years ago, a doctor told me I had to depend on drugs because of the hallucinations and flashbacks I was experiencing due to childhood traumas. No, I did not follow the doctor’s directions. After taking exactly six months of drugs to balance the chemical in the brain, I took them off cold turkey. I learned to live without them and without any chemical in my body because I knew there were side effects which would hurt me more if I continued using them. It wasn’t easy, but I did it. I’ve practiced healthy lifestyles and have lived a happy and normal life.
Now seeing someone I love depends on drugs for living breaks my heart. I told them not to, but they said they are too dependent on drugs and too weak to live without. All I can do now is to pray for them to become strong and break through the dark clouds hanging over their heads. I pray for them soon find the sun rays again. 🙏❤️
