He stopped drinking two years ago. They had to do an intervention to make him see how bad it had gotten. But once he was sober, he could see the damage caused by his habit. He is a good man and he doesn’t want to damage anyone. So deep within himself, he made a real commitment to sobriety.
But now there’s a new challenge. He used to drink to numb his anxiety and make social situations easier. The drinking was just a cover-up, and the original problem remains. He feels anxious and stressed. He’s disappointed in himself too. So many years wasted, and for what? Who is he? What is his purpose in this world? The struggle is real and he’s fighting it every day.
His girlfriend has a different perspective. She sees his true value and she is very proud of his progress. She has faith in him and in his future. She hopes that one day soon, he’ll have faith in himself too.
