Today let’s talk about isolation.
Have you ever felt like you had no one to talk to? That people just didn’t understand what you were going through?
I had that experience, and when I started trying to deal with it, I found out one of the biggest effects of growing up in an alcoholic family was isolation. I had to learn to talk to people – people who understood the feeling of being a teenager trapped inside a house, in the dead of winter, an unpredictable drunk in the living room, and no way to escape. I had to talk about what had happened, how I felt about it, and how it was affecting me in today’s world. I found out I was not alone – others had gone through similar things, and talking about those old events helped me begin to release them.
It was very freeing!
Have you ever had a similar experience?
