Have you ever been sucked into something so ugly with such speed you wonder “Where the heck am I and how did I get here?”
It happens. Addictions are evil.
It mainly happens with addiction and it doesn’t have to be ours — it can be someone else’s and it can sometimes change the course of our lives. Instead of the regular things like paying bills and working the job we become familiar with calling the cops, paying fines, court dates, rehabilitation, and the jail system.
We can get sucked in so quickly!
If this is your life, I am so sorry. It is heart wrenching to have someone you love catapulting themselves towards disaster. They are seeking peace for their troubled soul. And you are along for the ride because you love them or think you can help them.
I will pray for you. I will pray for your wisdom and discernment. I will pray for your safety. I will pray you have healthy boundaries.
Sometimes you cannot stop someone who is bent on destruction.
