Walking Around With The Band-Aid

We all have things in our life that we wish would change.

Or that we would stop doing.

I used to hear my inner voice saying “I am so done with drinking so much.”

It felt like I meant it.

I did.

But my actions proved otherwise.

I wanted to rip the Band-Aid off and go for it!

Be free!

Put on my big girl pants and take care of this issue.

Overcome this hurdle that has been haunting me.

Instead, I walked around with that Band-Aid on for years.

Ironically, that Band-Aid never healed me.

My desire for the drink and my drink count only grew.

And the negative feelings of shame, frustration and anxiety also grew.

The cure for my anxiety became the cause of my anxiety.

It was time for the Band-Aid to go.

I ripped it off.

It was painful for only a short while.

I believed the pain would last forever but I was wrong.

I believe this is the fear that holds us back thinking we won’t have fun again or find joy.

The complete opposite is true.

You open up to more of what life has to offer.

I invite you to try it.

You’ll never look back.
