I sacrificed $953,477 for my freedom. Sound stupid? Well, I was and wasn’t. 

I hate saying this, but I sacrificed $953,477 for my freedom. Sound stupid? Well, I was and wasn’t. 

I wasn’t stupid because I finally drew a boundary, and had self-respect. I said, “I’m not going to take this disrespect and belittling anymore.”

I was stupid because I took it for decades. That’s what black sheep do when they want to belong. They want to belong to their alcoholic family but they don’t. 

How’d I pay so much money? Well, I pruned the alcoholic limb on the family tree and now I’m pretty sure I’ll be cut off from my inheritance.

And I’m cool with that because I paid for something money can’t buy. 

I bought my self-respect. 

I bought my own personal power.

I also bought a fukton of street cred. Anybody paying attention heed my words.

“I’m done with alcoholics ruining lives. There’s a better way.”

It’s hard and scary and now I don’t have to spend the rest of my life being treated like a second-class citizen. 

Now I stand on my own two feet.
