When you hear the words "drug addict" what first comes to mind? Some rough-looking homeless person? Possibly someone who "has nothing going for them"? When I hear the words "drug addict" I think of a father, a son, a brother, an uncle, a friend. I think of someone who's been through hell and back multiple times. I think of someone who this life isn't easy for them- it's not just a walk in the park like for anyone else. I think of someone who doesn't judge others for whatever they're going through because you truly don't know people's hearts. I think of someone who is trying SO hard to live a beautiful life but constantly has something dragging them down- physically and emotionally. I think of someone who was always good at everything they did, someone who has a strong faith in God. Someone who got straight A's, won state championship, got that scholarship. "If we could look into each other's hearts and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care." Addiction, unfortunately, does not discriminate. But I think everyone should be more aware towards what addiction truly is, what addicts go through on a daily basis, and show more kindness in this world to those who are struggling. #stopthejudgement #ihatedrugs #nottheaddict
