We can lead them to the door of sobriety
We can even agreee to walk through the door with them.
But they have to be the ones to reach down, grab a hold of the knob and open the door.
We cannot do it for them.
If they choose not to, we have no choice but to walk away, leaving them standing at the door to wither and die.
It is a hard reality.
Yesterday I left someone I care about at that door.
I hope she finds the strenght to open it before she kills herself.
It is one of the hardest things I have ever done.
