Things around us is not always in accordance to us. Sometimes, they are beyond our imagination. So, it becomes difficult to accept them. People were asked: “what’s the hardest truth you’ve ever had to accept?” These are some of the best answers.
I stumbled across a comment thread she had written shortly after our she broke it off.
For years I’d blamed her for breaking it off, but it was clear that she was devistated by the breakup and viewed me as driving the behavior that forced her to the breakup. It broke my heart to read about her so stricken with grief.
She had been the bad guy in my story for breaking it off. I had been the bad guy in her story by driving her to it. We’re probably both right. But maybe she’s more right.
2.) No matter how hard you try, no matter how nice you are, you will end up being the villain in someone’s story.
3.) My mom is going to be an alcoholic for the rest of her life. I honestly believe the only way for her to get clean would be an extended stay at a top-tier rehab facility followed by a complete lifestyle change including new hobbies and ongoing therapy to treat underlying causes (social anxiety and unresolved childhood issues). The likelihood of this happening is zero.
4.) I’m going through this right now. My brother is an extreme alcoholic and I was his last life line to have somewhat of a normal life after my Mother and Father have both given up on him. He uses the people he loves and always puts himself first. Then when things go bad because he’s drinking 24-7 again and loses everything, he cries a lot and it’s hard not to feel sorry for him. But, he uses that as a weapon and ends up lying to you many many times a day. It’s always after a breakup with him he goes down the rabbit hole and just doesn’t care about anyone taking care of him and lies to everyone. He was bringing me down too much and broke many ultimatums I had given him and didn’t follow through with because I love him. I ended up calling the cops on him to get him out of my house Friday because he got drunk again and started getting “tough” with me because I was controlling his wallet and money. He lost his job because of it and has almost no money for himself and I’m paying for everything.
