Because I decided to ask 7 cups for help and found that I was not alone
I am proud of myself today because I started my day be grateful and giving thanks for the many wonderful things in my life.
Because after many years, I admitted that I’m depressed. That in itself felt like a weight has been lifted because now I can try and get help
I am proud of myself today because I recognized a negative pattern of coping skills that does not help me and today, I am completely loving myself for being aware of this.
Today for some random reason I felt my heavy despair creep up from a recent breakup. I noticed i was returning to old thinking patterns to deal with it which only made it worse. BUT INSTEAD.....I took a deep breath, imagined putting that despair in a cloud which I then observed it until it just floated away.
Poof gone ! Wow-It was so freeing I had no idea. I learned that here -thank you !❤️
I am proud of myself because I was able to admit that I had a problem that was making my life unmanageable that problem was alcohol.
For a couple of years after the suicide of my brother I used alcohol as a distraction to the real issues that were going on.
Instead of helping me alcohol ruined very important relationships with my immediate family and friends I have been sober for 8 months and although there are hard times the support is out there to help me and to help anyone else experiencing difficulties similar to mine. There is never a day you wake up and won't be able to achieve something.
We have to seize every opportunity if we want to see change.
I am proud of myself because I am dedicated listener, when I used to be on the opposite end of these chats.
My memory is slowly coming to a great focus. I'm starting to get back to my own ways of remembering. I am great at remembering things, I have learned to live a life for myself and to just live in the moment. I helped a person out yesterday by giving the advice of patience. I have remained at a point where I live just for today. I accept the things I cannot change and courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference. I have done this once and I will not rinse and repeat. I will continue with this life of honesty and happiness. I'm free and even though I never understood in the beginning, I understand what I want to now. That is my ultimate freedom and I can live a healthy life and have great things everyday.
I am proud of myself for becoming strong enough to realize that I don’t have to fight alone
