Willing Blindness

My boyfriend is an alcoholic.  We have been in a relationship four over 19 years. I have told myself many times that he can stop or he really does not have a problem.  The truth is that in my heart,  I have become an enabler for him.  It is crazy!.  I am blind to the fact that this is a disease and me holding him in my arms and wishing it will go away is not helping neither one of us.  Now I am worried that this disease is damaging his body.  I am blinded because of my emotions and my feelings for him.  I am at the point I cannot see him continue on hurting himself.  I  pray to God to help us both with this problem.  I  realize that I need help, too.  Because I am enabling him.  We are now seeking help.  I was blinded by love and emotions.

The choice to further my education causes conflict with my family social status, plans, and expectations.

The choice to further my education causes conflict with my family social status.  My family is well-known in our community and worry what people might say or think.  My family assumed I would be a failure, because of my disabililty, age, and the call to preach.

The choice to further my education causes conflict with my family plans.  My family wanted me to move-in with my mother, and not attend college.  I chose to return to school and pursue my calling.

The choice to further my education causes conflict with my family expectations.  My family expected me not to pursue my goals, but I  was determined to live my life to the fullest,

Finally, I understand life is about making  right choices, and whatever life deals you God will strengthen you and help you.
