There are two things I want to share with you that I feel can really make a HUGE difference in your day, especially if you are living with an alcoholic.
In this wonderful digital age we are living in we have the capabilities of contacting people that we love in many different ways.
I want to encourage you today to make an effort to contact the people you love. Just tell them that you were thinking of them and wanted to call and say hi!
This will help you escape the crazy-making in your mind that we sometimes get caught in when dealing with alcoholics.
I contact people through Facebook, phone calls, emails and I even send things through the mail periodically.
I also like to use an online service called 123 Greetings to send creative cards to my loved ones by way of email.
The other thing I wanted to mention is that you are a beautiful person.
You are unique in this earth and were created to be “exactly” who you are.
So, be kind to yourself today. Avoid beating yourself up over things that happened in the past. And by all means, do not allow the damaging things the alcoholic says about you penetrate to your inner being.
All day today, work on being conscious of the present moment and staying in the present moment.
