Living for 40 some odd years, I lived somewhat of a sheltered existence. Never knew what an addict was and how society looks down on them. Why? I realize that people have the moral tendancies of no acknowleding that stigmatism.
Addiction is something we all have in one way or another. Drugs, alcohol, sex and many other vices. But the main thing is drugs… Heroin, crack and crystal meth are in today’s society. People try to hide tthis shit but nonetheless, it will always come to surface.
Doing this service in Fall River, I talk to these people who painstakingly go to these clinics religiously to help them get better and try to overcome that glass ceiling and literally touch the sun.
NEVER, LET ANYONE SAY YOU ARE NOT HUMANF YOU ARE AN ADDICT. A REAL HUMAN ADMITS FAULT AND IS WILLING TO GO BEYOND HUMAN LIMITATIONS TO BETTER THEMSELVES….
Last week, I pick this couple up. Normal Saturday night. But not really, it was the female’s birthday. A special moment in anyone’s life, being a year older. But she was crying her eyes out. Her boyfriend, or should I say, “a worthless piece of crap” was making the situation worse, by wanting to go out to another bar and get more drunk. She is an emotional train wreck, or to be more modern “a hot mess”. Is still crying her eyes out and wanting to go home and sleep. I really don’t blame her. But the guy, OMFG! How anal can he be. This is her special day and you are being a real asshole. He isn’t consoling her in her moment of weakness, all he wants to do is get more drunk. WTF! Sometimes, I feel that certain people don’t deserve to be in relationship.
I am no Oprah or Dr. Phil, but some people just don’t realize being in a relationship expert. But if you have a significant other that is in emotional distress, attend to his or her needs and put yours on the backburner. Sometimes I feel like guys actually should take a course on dating 101. But nonetheless, I did the right thing by handing her a napkin so she could wipe her eyes and actually stop the mascara from running more than it was at the time.
