24.03.2016 It's been a long and checkered relationship with alcohol and I want to leave this relationship.
I want to find out who I am when I'm not thinking about alcohol, when I'm not drinking just a bit too much too often. I want to know what life feels like without it. Alcohol kept life small. I needed that for a long time but I'm ready for something else now.
I want freedom.
I went to bed with a heavy heart and woke with one. But to read the outpouring of love and concern on here from friends all over the world; it is indescribably consoling, like a warm blanket round the shoulders on a cold night, a small barrier of care. It’s still a cold night, we’re still heartbroken, but your care means so much. xxxx
@liberty I’m so very sad with you. What is our world coming to? We have had so many shootings in the U.S. it’s becoming more of a regular occurrence. Things that would have never happened when I was little. My prayers and thoughts are with you all. Evil is all around. I want to know why …..what was the purpose of what they did? All those innocent people. 🙁 xoxoxoxxox My heart is heavy with you all today.
I second this, so heartwarming to see the messages of love from around the world. Waking up to a day of sadness, disbelief and helplessness. I am esp feeling for the members of the ChCh Afghan Society whose place of worship is across the street from my home and have been directly affected 💔💔
Aw those poor families , it is that helplessness feeling aye , I feel so compelled to reach out , I’m sure our church will set a game plan tomorrow to help in some way , hard to go on as “normal” what even is that anymore .
Oh, Liberty, it’s just heartbreaking. When will this ever end now that the flood gates have opened?! My heart just breaks for your country and ours and the world in general, and the young man who did this, my heart breaks for him because he is so bogged down in hate.
