Today, September 27, 2017, I am grateful for gaining a better understanding of how monstrous my upbringing was and how it impacted my life. It was impossible for me to have turned out any other way than I did. I was on the fast track to alcoholism and addiction from the very second my parents conceived me.
This is one of the reasons I am so grateful to have been born in the States. I cannot help but wonder that if I had been born elsewhere, could I have survived? How many others are there like me who didn't?
I do have much to be grateful for. I am alive and I work hard to make my life better as best I can, every single day.
What are you grateful for? I would LOVE to hear ALL about it!
