Attention Family and Friends: We need to stop running and hiding from our problems. We have to confront those issues that sit in the deepest and darkest recesses of our soul. Dealing with stress, trauma, depression, and self doubt is hard, but not dealing with those issues can kill you mentally, emotionally, and physically.
We can't outrun or hide from life. Drugs and alcohol can numb the pain, but they can't cure the illness. A lot of people have walked in similar shoes down a similar path and gotten to the other side. There are people committed to listening to and helping you. You don't have to be embarrassed.
No one has it all figured out. We all struggle at times. Don't put on a front for other people. You will gain more strength and confidence facing your problems than running from them.
YOU CAN DO THIS!
