What Really Scares Me...

Happy Halloween, everybody out there in Blogland!

You know what really scares me, except for the fact that my Higher Power is willing and able and does take away all my fears, is that this family disease of alcoholism goes on and on and on...

Our family is experiencing some fallout now, even though we have made our amends and changed our behavior, and it is scary how destructive it is. But we must continue to trust our Higher Power that all will work for good!!

May the spirit of this season remind us all that we are spiritual beings living in physical bodies.

Happy Halloween!

I know this fear you speak of. My father is an active alcoholic up until today. He is lifeless, and as a little girl I remember not understanding why my love for him was just not enough. Now I am 30, and this is all I know of my father. I don't speak to him, I can only pray. This Dz i strong in my family, but today I have hope and this wonderful element in my life, God.

Thank you for being here. It helps so much to know the truth about the destructiveness and how others are sticking together to fight it. Unity!

I know what you mean about fallouts!
Ugh.I am sure that is what is meant by the Progress not Perfection slogan.As long as we stay true to ourselves and own understanding of this disease I truly believe we can deal with these fallouts a little easier.I know it can get frustrating though..ugh.I believe cycles can be broken though Al-Anon and I and our blogger buddies are examples of that!!!!
Great post..thank you for sharing.
(Hope you had a fun Halloween)
