Doing The Right Thing

Sometime next week I will be blowing the whistle on my College for a violation in the Americans with Disabilities act. If life could be all so simple. I sat down and was interviewed for the next level of my college career. It was something that she said that made me feel uncomfortable. That feeling that punches you in the gut. Instead of breaking out in an angry outrage, I cried. I don’t want to be labeled. Some times we have to do the right thing. I told her I just wasted 5 years of my college career. The past twenty four hours has been a whirlwind. I have decided to switch majors and become an addictions counselor. I don’t care about how much money I will make. Earlier today I watched a man admiring a wall of guitars from famous bands. We struck up a conversation and he told me an addiction story that involved his family member. This all occurred within a matter of less than 10 minutes. I often ask myself……Why do strangers tell me their personal stuff? Now I know why……..They see something in me that I don’t. If we can only……..Listen and learn. Life would be so much easier. If we could just stop, addiction would be no more. But life is what it is. We must learn to do the right thing. Let go of addiction, hurt, and pain. Totally grasp recovery with eyes wide open.
