My "group" therapist, had all of us write "fuck you" letters
to our drug(s) of choice, at the first group meeting. Then we read them out loud at the second meeting. I thought it was stupid at first, Im not sure why. It wasnt until I actually read mine, out loud, that it became powerful. then we all burned them together.
At the end of the meeting, we were told NOW to write at least one more, on the subject of whoever or whatever our we think rooted our addiction.
Im writing mine, this time with more openess than the first.
I just wana say that, although this may sound dumb as hell. If any of you feel like you have unfinished business with a family member or someone or even SOMETHING from your past,
write them (it) a fuck you letter,
and see if you just dont feel 100% BETTER.
dont forget to burn it, at the end, or some people have buried their's. Thats the symbolic part, of "letting go"
becuase for any of us to get better, the letting go is definitely important.
I never thought, such a small act would be so huge for me. In my letter Im telling a certain someone in my life everything that I remember, that was wrong. The things they will NOT admit to, the things my family has consequently 'buried' so it doesnt exsist anymore.
Oh yea, and telling your drug of choice to fuck off is pretty cool too.
Just a thought
anyone can give up,
its the easiest thing in the world to do, but to
hold it together, when everyone would understand if you fell apart
That's TRUE STRENGTH
