Red face If nothing ever changed, there would be no butterflies!

I have changed.
I have listened.
I have learned.
I have grown.

this has been a 5 year process in my 12 step program of Al anon...

I have learned to say NO. And by saying no and keeping mentally healthy, I do not walk into other peoples ISSUES and BUSINESS, these issues are NOT for me to own....

with that being said...with stopping the enabling, i have lost alot of "friendships"

BUT i would not change anything for the PEACE in my life

I have had old friends try to bring me back to the "old ways"...but i know i have my slogan THINK! to bring me back....

its funny how life is when you say the word NO...people want you to change...but for their own benefit...i changed for ME...

I am not the same person i once was when i came here, i am a butterfly now....a bright red...and always travel to new heights with these wings...but i still stay grounded with the slogans and keeping it REAL...

we each work at our own pace....
thank you for reading...
