Finding Yourself Again



Two days ago, I saw a friend who was having a bad day. As soon as they saw me, they asked for a cigarette. I told them to talk to me first. We went to my office and sat across from each other. They almost started to cry feeling overwhelmed with life. This broke my heart to know the person sitting across from me was a very strong-willed person. To know that someone could break them down so much made me upset.

 

"It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are." — E.E. Cummings

This person was going to quit their evening job to have more time to look for their own place. Sober living can be hard at times. People will get so jealous cause they are not where you are at in life. Those people will say and do anything to bring you down in life. Misery loves company.


"Your self-worth is determined by you. You don't have to depend on someone telling you who you are." — Beyoncé

You must look at yourself and know you are doing right. Even when you feel like you're failing you probably are not. That's when we must do a self-inventory just to see where you are at. When you least expect it, GOD will send you a message.  

This message will most likely be from the person you least expect it from. Most people know me for just cracking jokes in the most unsuitable times. That's because I think people need to laugh more in life. But in this case, I took a very tender route filled with compassion. By the end of our conversion, they felt very much alive again.  


"Keep your face always toward the sunshine, and shadows will fall behind you." — Walt Whitman

This is why I do my job and work the hours I do. You never know when you're going to save someone's life by just being there to talk to them. So, please speak kindly to people because you never know what they are going through. That could be the last time you ever see them again. 


Later,
