Day 10: Write about something for which you feel strongly.
I get very annoyed with people who judge others and think they are somehow better than others. Especially when it comes to the way people choose to cope with their difficulties. Most people think that a workaholic is better than an alcoholic, but odds are they are both spending a lot of time with something to avoid certain stress or feelings. Same with people who use drugs. I’m not saying their behavior is okay, but I think people need more compassion to look at why they choose to do these things, instead of judging them. Also people who have given up destructive behavior should be praised more than they are. It’s often only in an AA group where people will appreciate and recognize your days sober. As with my self harm, there are only certain people who know how long it has been since I last self harmed (72 days if your curious) because people don’t talk about these accomplishments because they fear others will judge them.
