That is my reaction to the AA meeting I attended for my psych class tonight. I was not expecting to get much out of it, but boy was I wrong.
I don't really feel like going into too much detail, as it is something that is very personal to me, but the lesson they shared reminded me of my own struggles. Here is a small bit of my response paper: "I would never have had the courage to accept what I had done and recover from it unless I had hit that bottom and had no where to go but up. A person doesn’t want to admit they need help until it’s unbearable for them, and that was where I was at. Luckily my friends supported me all the way, helping me by checking up on me and sometimes even simply telling me I was loved and important." If you'd like to read the rest of it, feel free to ask, but I can't guarantee I will say yes. This is a hard topic for me to even write about, let alone share with others, so give me time.
I'm really glad I went tonight.
