we are all learning in life, all on the road to recovery at some stage and all on the path to best versions of ourselves (hopefully).
they say most of your problems (or behavioral issues) stem from some kind of childhood trauma or incident. Is that accurate? I don't know.
All I can do is share my experiences with you and maybe you can relate. My childhood wasn't great, it wasn't the worst, but it wasn't the best. My biggest problem being at times I treat people I care about the most, the worst. Or at the very least better then I treat a stranger.
I caught up with a friend on the weekend, someone I've known for about 10 years. I know many people of admire the trust, respect and connection we have. But it was not always the case, sure we started off friends. Then there was fights, alot of them, we said and did things that caused us not to talk for over a year.
Why we started talking again I can't remember, why we stopped I can't remember either. This is what I believe is the most important thing in life, family, friends, what ever you want to call those rock solid relationships in your life.
Especially when your on the road to a better life , having people you can call at anytime, trust with your life, tell things to without being judged. Having those relationships are priceless. Like I said though they are not perfect. I mean a years along time to not talk, but not in the scheme of things.
I mainly meet people through fitness or the gym (no surprises there) but having moved and traveled around so much , I guess I've created this network or community of positive and like minded people. I like to believe I'm putting in some serious hard work on improving myself and becoming 'better' , but like they say you are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with. So I must be hanging around some fucking cool people.
No ones perfect, but with the right people you can get things pretty close.
