Hi there. I wanted to share a little moment of what I like to think is “self-care” that I just experienced.
2 days ago my boyfriend decided to make the change and get help with his addiction. He is at his parents house detoxing. I was supposed to see him tonight but things didn’t go as planned and I had to stay home (alone). I spent my night in pity and feeling sad.
But I had this realization that I always take moments for granted. At first I was sad that I had taken for granted all the nights I got to sleep in bed next to him and cuddle. I was sad for all the moments I spent being angry at him when I was at least in his presence.
And then I realized, I shouldn’t take THIS moment for granted. He is alive, sober, and safe. Things I didn’t know would be true 2 days ago… And he loves me. And I love him. And I am grateful. And I will not take those things for granted.
