Finding The Hero In You
The Hero Is In You
Finding a hero sometimes could be a difficult thing in some peoples lives, but finding the hero in you is there for your taking, Do you feel like you can be your own hero?
I for one always wanted a hero in my life, but found it hard to find even though my hero was right in front of me. When people mess up their lives by doing the wrong things, such as being addicted to alcohol, drugs or anything that could be addicted they long to find or be a hero when they know it would be impossible.
The reason it would impossible is this. How can you be a hero to yourself or anyone else when you are addicted to drugs or alcohol? How can you be proud of what you are doing to yourself and everyone else in your life. It is certainly nothing to be proud of, I can tell you that.
I always wanted to be a hero to someone. To have someone look up to me as their hero. To be respected by many and help those to be better people, but how can you possibly do something like that when your life is so messed up with being addicted to alcohol.
I wanted to be my own hero, but didn't know where to turn to find that hero inside me, until, the day I surrender to my alcohol addiction.
Yes, the addiction that almost ruin my life, my marriage and my family. Now I can stand tall and be proud of my accomplishments of beating the horrible addiction we call alcoholism.
Everyone must get sick and tired of me writing on alcohol addiction, but I feel I must put my life of alcohol addiction out to the world in hopes that may be just one article will hit home for someone that is addicted to alcohol or even their family member or friend.
NOW I FEEL THAT I AM A HERO IN MY OWN WAY
Now that all the days, months and years of being addicted to alcohol has passed I truly feel that I am a hero in my own way and that my family and friends respect me more and want to be around their new found hero.
I am not patting myself on the back here, but in all do respect, I, as well as many other people that have surrender to their addiction deserve to be proud of ourselves. Giving up drinking alcohol after so many years is not a easy thing to do, but it can be done if you really want to be clean and sober.
When we the addicted find our sobriety and continue to stay sober we feel that we are our own hero's.
So, when you have accomplished something big in your life,such as beating an addiction or really anything you are so proud of, think of yourself as a hero. The hero that made that one thing you wanted in your life become a reality. Be proud of yourself, and call yourself a hero and I am sure many other people will be doing to same.
Remember, the hero is in you and all you have to do is to go after it!
Be Your Own Hero
