Author Unknown - Dare To Believe

I found this several months ago it kind sums up part of how I feel about myself and how I am working on trying to be better......It takes time and I will get there. When you are with an alcoholic....you either fold up and loose everything within yourself, learn how to live with them while still holding on to who you are or you leave them. I left because if it had not been for Steve I would have lost myself. For his sake and for my own I had to leave. For a long time it was not about my ex's problems it was about my failures. I have learned that sure I made mistakes, I did things wrong...but this was about him and his "illness". My job is to make sure I do not make the same mistakes again.

I know deep down I am a good, positive and loving person....my problem is at times....I still feel like I have to prove it to the world for anyone else to truly believe it.


Dare to Believe
Everybody Knows:
You can't be all things to all people. You can't do all things at once. You can't do all things equally well. You can't do all things better than everyone else. Your humanity is showing just like everyone else's.

So:You have to find out who you are, and be that. You have to decide what comes first, and do that. You have to discover your strengths, and use them. You have to learn not to compete with others,Because no one else is in the contest of *being you*.

Then:You will have learned to accept your own uniqueness. You will have learned to set priorities and make decisions. You will have learned to live with your limitations. You will have learned to give yourself the respect that is due. And you'll be a most vital mortal.

Dare To Believe:That you are a wonderful, unique person. That you are a once-in-all-history event. That it's more than a right, it's your duty, to be who you are. That life is not a problem to solve, but a gift to cherish. And you'll be able to stay one up on what used to get you down.
