One thing I learned early on in recovery is to always look up the definition of a word. You’ll be surprised how the context of a paragraph can change when you stop skimming over words, thinking they are meaningless. Words have a very profound impact on our perception (realization) of our own understanding.
Treatment did not fix me, nor was I forced to go, and thank God for that. Before you get all sideways, let me explain. I truly wish being dipped into the treatment water would’ve cured all my problems, erased my past life, and put me on an equal playing field with the rest of the world.
