How often do we actually speak about what kills us, rips us apart and makes us feel so vulnerable that we can’t take it anymore? Do we really fall for addictions due to loneliness or do we get lonely because we fall for addictions? So many questions, all it feels is to tell the other person to just shut up and sit besides and just be there and not say a thing.
Here, we are not talking about being an alcoholic. There are so many things in the world which say that alcohol makes you forget everything, but isn’t it just for a while? Does reality actually change? We all know the answer. But we form a habit of running away from problems and drown into unconsciousness because it makes us feel comfortable, it makes us feel like we are hugged by a certain someone and life is just as easy as it could be, like someone who is listening to all our problems and for real, understand what we go through.
A lot of us might not even know what does a shrink mean, so let me define it for you:
“you should see a shrink”
Yes, it means someone who is professionally meant to support you and listen to all what you have to say because it is going to make you feel lighter. The point is, what would you choose? To pay for a drink and stay drowned, ignore the situation or to pay for someone’s time for them to listen to you and help you come out of it?
The context here is not meant to compare both the situations but to simply put, would you let the drink be your shrink? Let me know in the comments.
