Q19: How are you making the world a better place?
A19: Spreading goodness, kindess, & loving people.
I have to say I don’t really think I am one of those people making the world a better place. I am just one person and some days I can barely breath because of my own worries. However, I do try my best these days to be kind to everyone I meet, do good in the community around me, and love both those who deserve it and those who don’t.
Now, if the question had asked how I WANT to make the world a better place? My answer would be this:
I would like to start a non-profit that helps those going through addiction. Offer them a completely free place to get sober and find a life after addiction. This place would be at no cost to them. They would have housing, jobs, a personal life coach, church services, and we would teach them about life stability, mental stability, physical stabiliy, healthy relationships, sobriety success, caring for themselves and others, and anything else needed to know about being in recovery. This place wouldn’t be about strick rules or court orders (though I would offer it through the court systems) it would be a place to make them feel like they can do this on thier own without actually being on thier own. And as they grew in thier sobreity I would help them to inspire other’s so that they felt the importance of thier success.
I know there are rehabs and centers to get help. However, 99% of those places force you to stay, cost you and your family thousands of dollars, teach you the text book basics, and never care to help you more once you have “completed” or left thier program.
Mine would be different. Each person would have thier own life coach and even after they left that person would be welcome any time to come back incase of extra help needed or whatever the reason!
Addiction is an epidemic and it needs to stop. Addiction takes the lives of otherwise beautiful, kind, smart, & fantastic individuls and ruins every part of them and thier families lives. There needs to be a place that people can really offer help and actually CARE about the people that walked through the doors.
Teens and adults suffer from addiction and I want to help both. That is how I would truly like to change the world!
That is all for now
