I think what she meant was it was the self-esteem of the person SETTING the bar, but you're still right.


One year becomes two, two years becomes five, five becomes ten and before you know it, you've wasted your whole life on a problem you can't solve. That's one way to spend your life. -rwinger

I will not spend my life this way.

Self-esteem follows right actions, whichever side of the bar you're on. smile

Neak, do you mean it doesn't matter if you are drinking, or if you are the bartender?

Am I on the right thread?

Does it matter if you fall off the bar stool?

Is worried4mygirl Ok?

Any change this week?

SS

PS, I couldn't resist.
I promise I will try to do better.


I think sometimes about all the pain in the world. I hope we can ease that here, even if only a little bit.

Nothing to do with alcohol. More like the difference between highjump and limbo, or how high or how low you go. Highjump is achievement. Limbo is bending over backwards the lower the standards.

You can take comfort that God knows when a single sparrow falls from the tree.

Your daughter is walking in a dark valley of sin and temptation.
At this point I encourage you to ask your entire church to pray for her.
And read Hosea in the Old Testament. Pray that God places hedges of thorns around her

I pray for footsteps that G*D is carrying her through this and being the Man she does need.

May she feel too uncomfortable soon to give MM up and come home.
