I don’t get paid $$ for this!

It’s true, I don’t get paid a single dime for any of this. What is this you’re asking? Recovery, duh! And yeah, I really don’t get paid a single dime to be better. Although, I would be lying if I said I didn’t get paid at all…  I get paid in so many other things than money for working on my recovery. Are you starting to see the correlation? I “work” for my recovery, but I don’t get “paid” for it in money. If you can’t see it, here’s a breakdown ya’ll.  I get paid in a healthy atmosphere around...

What my Recovery is Like today.

Dear Hardship, I am Stronger because of this…

Dear Hardship, You may see someone who is broken, a soul that has been drug down into the dirt and put me on my knees. You may see someone who’s been thrown through the ringer a few dozen—or hundred—times, and that someone who has lost his profound innocence that he started with. Oh my Lord, ...
