It may be too simplistic to put it this way, but I have been through a thing or two. Because of what I experienced I had to dig deep to find words of wisdom by which to live. Fortunately, there is a lot of wisdom out there! I thought today I would share with you some of what has been helpful for me.
I have carried this pamphlet around with me for about twenty years. Even if you are not an “ACOA” aka the adult child of an alcoholic parent, it’s not hard to relate. What they call “dysfunction” is something many families can relate to, whether the grandfather was a rage-aholic, or ones mother was a control freak, or someone you love is trying to recover from an addiction.
I hope it is useful to you today. I wish you a day full of gentleness toward yourself and others.
