Tonight I was capable of being a best friend for the first time in 7 years. I supported my best friend through her mother’s funeral and was able to be around normal people and hold conversations intelligently as a normal human being! People actually enjoyed talking to me, people I knew and people I didn’t know.
Granted, I knew these people before the drug abuse and this was the first time since high school and college I had seen them again, but it was still awesome. I realized that I have good things of my own personal life to share that are amazing like my son, family, and school. I was able to be part of a group other than my family. It was a very good experience and a glimpse of what my future holds!
I just wanted to say thank you to all of you for the knowledge and tools I received there that I was able to apply to a scenario such as tonight and the rest of my life!
