Seeking your personal truth is never easy

 

Seeking your personal truth is never easy, but once you know why you do what you do you will find peace withing yourself. #awareness #understanding

In our journey of encouraging and developing a certain bond with college students we have noticed that many of them are suffering from what we refer to as  Generational Curses. Alina made me aware of this a few months back when she was speaking with a young lady at the university. This came as a shock to me. I have never thought about the possibility that a parent can actually not want a child to go to college. My Generational Curse that was bestowed upon my siblings, my mother and her father was for us to go to college and be the best that we can be. And that is the course that I have passed on to my son. To us going to college was never a question. It was our believe that was a way of life and a passage of life.

Here is a note we received from a young lady from CSUDH. Take a look at the video and the book. Hope you enjoy it and as always, your feedback is welcome.

Hello Michael and Alina,
I truly enjoyed your video. It’s informative, hits home, and is a sincere olive branch to those who seek answers. Loved it!
Thank you for sharing.

Ask for help, find your life balance.

Stop the stigmatism in recovery. Think to be Different ™

Ask for help, find your life balance?

24 million Americans who are currently using illicit drugs and all family members and friends who are affected by this epidemic.

I believe this will inspire individuals suffering with addiction to seek treatment?

This video will help them understand that they are not the only ones suffering from this dilemma and that seeking help is not a sign of weakness. To admit an individual has a problem is great sign of a person’s inner strength and willingness to resist judgment.

How does this video work to end the stigma surrounding addiction?

It inspires those who have a drug dependency to find the courage to stand up for themselves, to take a different path, and not let illicit drug use of their past dictate their true character or their future.

What inspired me to create this video?

After 15 years of being involved in the drug/alcohol treatment community I have heard and witnessed thousands and thousands of individuals that never reached out for help for fear of being embarrassed, shamed and judged by their friends, families, and peers. These stories inspired me to write my book, “When Nobody’s Home,” which is meant to inspire those who suffer from addiction to look for solutions to the problem. My hope is to impact those who believe they are crippled by their own insecurities that addiction can be conquered and defined by their self-worth.
