Addiction, even food addiction, being a slow form of suicide, we like to think it won’t harm anyone else but ourselves. We may even think that our leaving this plane will actually help the people in our life.
But number one, you have a purpose here in this place and time, and you would be missed. You have gifts only you can share, and you don’t need to be perfect to share them. In fact, your unique challenges allow you to do your work in a unique way.
Number two, if you are stuck in depression which often stems from ingratitude, you are handing down your disease of ingratitude to your children. Cultivating a heart filled with gratitude is key to happiness and overcoming addiction.
Number three, if you are stuck in addiction you will not live the life you deserve to live! You had to be born and you have to die. The least you can do in the interim is enjoy a good life. You deserve to be here, you see. You were destined to be here. You are needed here, now. You are loved.
I am choosing life! Choose life with me!!
