It is difficult to tell someone their own behavior is harming someone they love.
It is a harsh reality, to learn that my personal problems are impacting someone’s life in a negative way. It is even more painful when you have a deep connection with the person, such as your mother or child. I find myself in a position often, to remind or reveal to someone; they are harming themselves and the people they love. My words often hurt, because truth isn’t always gentle or easy. It is often difficult and painful. Regardless, it is the truth.
We may call our behavior “help” but that is only true if what we are doing, is healthy for the person. If our “help” translates to funding an addiction or accepting consequences for their actions; it isn’t helping. It is hurting them and everything else. Help must always be helpful.
It was hard for me to understand why my drinking and drug use was harming other people so much. I wasn’t intending to do that, so why would it keep happening? What we aim to do and what happens as a result of our choices, needs to stay aligned. You do that through honest behavior.
Ultimately, the results will speak for themselves. When the results are negative, the behaviors must change.
