    Surprisingly, I can relate to a lot of the op. Particularly the mental breakdown part. I went a couple months refusing to talk to anyone..it was school then bed. No talking, nothing. Also the drug thing..(though mine wasn't alcohol). Hmm..

    I guess I already knew that it was bound to turn around. I've been in some dark places mentally...any change would have been an improvement.

    I'm at the stage of trying to figure out the job thing. Once thats settled, I guess it will be time to start a family of my own. This thought is actually more soothing than alarming..

    But where do I find the awesomeness of the grit of reality? I know things get better but it's like everything is covered in this grit and I don't see how it's so awesome right now...

    A new reality show? But then the thought of that itself really isn't really reality grit, is it?

    by just counting what's gotten more awesome than it was?

    I have no fucking clue who I am, I still feel that I NEED a drink from time to time and I hate christmas, but it's all better than it was in the past- it's a step forward even though everything isn't perfect by any means

    and the movie Ringmaster TOTALLY illustrates the oddness of reality television as in fiction/"reality"

    You ever work on something.. where you felt outside of your league with it, and you struggled and when you were done you were like, "Omg.. I just did that. WHOO!!.. ... I'm never, EVER doing that again. Ever!"

    That's the grit.

    Things get better or worse

    An individual has a great deal of influence over these two possibilities

    The stronger you are, the more influence you have

    Unfortunately, it never is. I can totally relate to your story. Take care of yourself.

    I too returneth from the dead.
    Once upon a time things were very bad indeed, they got worse, i nearly died several times over.
    This seemed to be a very dark place in which only bad things ever happened and it became worse and worse, just as i thought things possibly couldn't get any worse, they did.
    I spent several years in a place hithertoo unknown to most of mankind.
    Somewhewre between the dead and the insane.
    But yes to look at my life now, completely different.
    I am so very grateful for the life i have now.
    I feel truely blessed, i love all that i have and shall not take it for granted.

    I'm also just coming out of a long, resentful period of my life. I've since learned that the only thing you can ever really do is to be as positive and constructive as you can at any given moment. To fall away from this simple axiom (which I have very easily in the past) has been the true root of all my unhappiness. But sticking to it in the face of everything you experience reaps great rewards.

    Looking back, it's kind of incredible how many excuses I made for myself, and how I let other people prop up those excuses for me. Oh well, live and learn, keep moving forward.
