So you drank again after 18 months of abstinent recovery? Okay, get back up and make the next choice a better one. Stopped taking your mental health meds because you were feeling better and didn’t think you needed them anymore? That’s definitely going to be a learning experience that reminds us to do better in the future.
Mistakes happen. Don’t allow your mistakes to stall or define you. It doesn’t matter how many times you fall, so long as you get back up every time. That’s not an excuse to make poor choices, it’s an acknowledgement that we are all human and our humanity deserves compassion.
Never forget that I love you, and that excludes no one.
