It amazes me how cruel some people can be. They kick you when your down and spit on your face. They don’t just kick you, they knock suckerpunch you and then set you ablaze. Leave you for dead. A former friend, on my bday sent me nasty comments, low-blows and I ignored her. Apparently she sent even worse comments after but I deleted her (I saw the comments last night) . I responded with “I feel sorry for you. God bless you.” she tried to knock me down and make me relapse, but she has no idea how strong my willpower is. I’ve been sober going on 30 days now. I realize she needs help and that she is in a negative space. So I’ll leave it at that. I won’t respond or react the way she may expect me too. The words may cut deep but they won’t upend my success. I’m walking forward. Head high. Focused. Determined. Alive.
“I feel sorry for you. God bless you.”
