Well done. I also learned in many moments that telling people the real truth, is the best choice you can make.
Its the only way to allow them that they really can see YOU.
Every single human beeing has things and problems make someone struggle, and knows how it feels running against the same walls. When you show others who you really are, you’ll get this support now, which you might had needed in the past,when youre strarted getting an addict. Such expiriences can be very powerful. They can clean up a bit of the grief and sadness and give you a bit of trust in yourself. I’m happy to read your post 😊
