Addiction is difficult for everyone, including the person who is suffering. In short, as hard as it is to witness someone you love self-destruct and create so much pain for those around them, try to embrace these truths:
1. They are suffering. I’m not an expert in addiction, but I believe addiction, in simple terms, is seeking an external solution for an internal need.
2. You’ll never be able to fix it for them. It’s their soul’s journey, not yours. Give the person the space to help themselves. The healing work needed is between them & God.
3. You have to Believe. They’ll get there, wherever there is for them. But, you can offer prayerful support without expecting it to look the way you want it to. It will become what it needs to be for them.
