My aunt Kelly had a beautiful service. I got to see many family I haven’t seen in a long time. There was bouquets of beautiful flowers surrounding beautiful pictures of my beautiful aunt.

We weren’t ready to say goodbye. I will miss you for the rest of my life. Not surprisingly, I didn’t have a friend to show up for support.

I’ve decided that I cant force someone to care back. No matter how much I did to support them, they don’t have to support me back. I have realized I can’t change their mind. I have realized that our friendship is most likely over.

Now I need to accept it. Just like I have to accept my aunt is gone.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

This prayer is not just for addicts.
