Did You Look?
I hate when people tell me they check out my blog, and they clearly did not. I can look at my stats, and see where people have visited from. Being honest is a big thing that we learn to work on in recovery. We are taught, again, to learn the value in truth and honesty. We are encouraged to be honest with ourselves, and we have to "take a good, honest look at ourselves" before we can get better. After years of addiction, some people will never trust us again. And we painfully, slowly build that trust with our loved ones again.
And then, you look around to realize most of the world is full of liars.
I really could care less if someone checks out my blog, or not. I write it for me, and now for all of you who have become my community. If I give someone the link, it is merely because I think it may interest/benefit them...it has nothing to do with me. And I could care less if someone looks at it or not...so why lie to me, and tell me you did? (It is always those in the straight world that do this, by the way...the addicts and ex addicts I know either lap it up, or honestly say they have not had time...)
