I Never…..

Letting Go
July 12, 2018

I Never…..

I Never…..

…thought I would lose everything.

…once considered alcoholism and drug addiction would happen to me.

…wanted to be divorced.

…imagined leaving my daughter behind.

…understood why this happened to me.

…thought I would fail.

 

…knew how many people were just like me.

…felt so understood until I entered recovery.

…met so many good people afflicted by the same disease.

…thought honesty could be so healing.

…forgot what I learned and those who helped me.

 

…regret taking that first step to change my life.

…will internalize again.

…go a day without speaking with my daughter.

…imagine being anything but a great dad.

…doubted my potential, I can do anything with a clear mind.

…would have guessed failing would lead to achievement.

…think I did this alone.

 

…had the life I have now….never!.
