Feel like you have people fooled into thinking you're fine, kids are fine, everything is fine but really - things are falling apart and you've never felt lonelier?
Hi Michelle, i look forward to hearing/ reading your newsletter every week. Thankyou xx
Michelle, I have missed your messages SO MUCH. The community is not the same without you. But I’m so glad to be here reading your work.
I woke up very blue today. Trying all day to reverse how I’m feeling. Thank you for this!! Absolutely does help!!
Loved this. I want you to know every week on my lunch I step out of my office and your podcasts are what play on my lunch hour ♡ They are so beautiful and so needed... I felt so ashamed of my brand new, beloved marriage, riddled with alcoholism. Over the past 5 years I've had just about every emotion possible over it. It is because of communities like this one and my Families in Serenity group that I'm finally starting to heal. Thank you
Hi Michelle, I’m tired of hiding. My adhd Dr suggested that I join an Alanon group but I found you. It’s a first step to recognizing that being married for almost 31 years to someone who struggles with alcohol addiction but is a high functioning achiever is, well… sometimes hell on earth. Thank you for what you do. FB = anxiety to me!
Yeah but what if our addicted partner is bringing us down so it is hard to project that perfect image. Also the addictive personality does not take responsibility around the house and on and on. My hope is you can share how to make it better
Thank you for reminding me/us that we all have problems. Big or small and their appearance of big or small is not our concern because we should be looking at them through the eyes of the Lord and then they become trivial. Today, I was stuck in massive anger (I understand anger is a secondary emotion to my hurt and sadness.) but my wise son said to me, “ Can you control it?” The answer was “No”. Brad then said, “ Then make decisions on what you can control.” So I’m choosing to do things that I know my soul needs regardless of what is going on around me. I have to save myself first so I then get well and then help others. Michelle, that is what you are doing. You saved you and in the process you saved your children and others, like us. Thank you, Lisa
You're voice is very comforting to me. Sometimes it makes me emotional just like this post. Thank you for making your posts with voice.
Tubbie needs some orthodontire--that is one serious underbite! 😋
Thank you, Michelle. Social Media looks like one thing and real life is another thing. Yes, we all struggle with something, so true.
