Recently, my boyfriend began attending AA meetings to overcome his alcohol problem, and I am truly glad that he made this decision on his own. Unfortunately, I have come to realize how much I have neglected my own life in the past year and how deeply his periodic bouts with self-loathing have affected my own attitude about life. I am trying so hard to focus my attention back to my own life because I am so close to receiving my degree and I need to concentrate right now. I am blaming him and myself for my setback even though I know this is harmful and pointless. I would really appreciate a few words of encouragement or, perhaps, advice to help me through this sticky spot.

Release his problems into the Hands that hold us when we need holding. Give it up to Spirit and get back to the business at hand. Love him and love yourself. ALANON is a good place for you to come to an understanding that you are not responsible for him, and a place to vent frustrations. Peace does come through understanding and acceptance. Go in peace...

We hear you Chloe. When we reach out, there is always someone there to listen, even if it isn't the one we want to have listening to us, it is the one(s) meant for us. Keep communicating. It helps to relieve some of the aloneness you are feeling.
