They say sober life is a better life, Or Life is better sober, it's time we flip the script and offer some concrete reasons for why this is true. laying down on this couch. I feel so miserable tried and so lonely and bored feeling lazy. Going through the mood swings and motion of life. Wondering what’s my real purpose on this earth 🌍 I feel so guilty and ashamed and am not even drinking.I feel like a bad mother and I don’t know what am going to do when my mother leave she helping me out when I suppose to be helping her and my sick son my life suck right now and I feel so lost because I suppose to be able to be strong for my family and am weak

You don’t seem weak. You wouldn’t be saying you feel like a bad mom if you didnt care and you do care about and care for your kids.

True

Like you I often ponder life and analyze things a lot. I get so serious about everything.

We do our best and try to get into acceptance of things unfolding in life. Let’s try not to judge so sharply but find light things to focus on sometimes.

Sorry if that came across wrong. I’m not in the best place myself. I keep trying to get a out of the place I am emotionally but now am at the point I just have to accept my feelings. I hope you will feel better soon. Life can be beautiful but it’s almost impossible for me to see that right now. I wish you peace today.

Don’t be sorry, is ok. I understand where u coming from. And am sending u a great big hug 🤗 and positive vibes your way praying u get the strength u need to make it through today and many more days to come don’t be so hard on yourself. You may feel lost or hopeless, like nothing will ever go right ever again. Maybe a major relationship ended, you suffered a loss, or you feel completely alone. While it’s easy to think things won’t ever change, the reality is that your emotional pain will not last forever. Hang in through the storm and you may just see a rainbow. I hope u feel better soon. Whatever u do please don’t give up on yourself. Because you’re awesome 😎 just the way you’re

Hi Tamka39, Wanted to stop by and encourage you. It sounds like you have overcame so much and now as a sober minded person you are searching for meaning in the lulls that come when life is in a transitional stage. I would suggest finding a new hobby, further your education, start exercising, or something that will help you recognize the new and better person you have become. When you are bored find things to do with your son (when he is feeling better) like going for a walk, coloring, baking, going to a movie. There are so many ways to make these times of change more enjoyable. I remember giving my girls $5 a piece and taking them to Wal-Mart. I challenged them to find something they really liked for $5 and then we would go through McDonalds and buy something for each of us with left over change. To this day they remember those moments as some of their happiest. Don't waste a moment more, go out and embrace all life has for you.

Have you considered going to an AA meeting? Please consider going and getting in a group of people who know exactly how you are feeling. You can go online to aa.org. There you will find a directory for a local group as well as uplifting articles. I believe in you and know you can take this necessary step. God bless.
