There is a famous quote that says, ‘if you’re old, don’t try to change yourself, change your environment.’
I have a sister who has had the same problems for 20 years. Addiction, pain, & bad choices. At 47, she finally got the courage to change her environment. She moved 1400 miles away and is attempting to change her life. Does this solve everything? NO. But it opens the door for something new to happen in her life! It helps her with a fresh start in some areas and gives her some positive feedback. Sometimes thats all we need is a push in the right direction…a different direction.
