Thank for sharing, even if it did make you uncomfortable. What you had to say was inspiring to me. Sharing our stories, our successes and failures, etc. is I think God's work. Who knows when the most seemingly innocent comment may help another along their path. You may light that single candle in the darkness.
I believe that God gives all of us challenges so that we may pull closer to him in our struggle and our need for guidance. Mine is an addiction to food. I heard said that whatever we turn to in our time of need is our 'god'. I guess I've been substituting food for a real relationship with God. AA tells us that when we are feeding our addiction, whatever that may be, we are not available for any other relationship. I, personally am making myself available.
It is inspiring to hear from someone of your generation who wants to truly be alive until they no longer are. Bless you.
