It is impossible to detach yourselves from the people that you love tremendously who are living reckless lives. You can try to help them as much as they need it but they will not stop as long as they are getting away with their life style. They can hurt you and tear your family apart without taking into consideration what the consequences could be. Learning how to detach yourself from that type of character is one of the most difficult things we go through in recovery. I am having a difficult time learning how to detach from people who are toxic and my life. It’s more difficult when you see them constantly because they are your family members or close friend or in your work area or you go to school with them. And learning to detach is not very easy when you have been so attached to somebody for so long. Seen them live a reckless life and put not only themselves but other people in danger, such as their child or spouse or sibling, is very heartbreaking. How do you truly Love somebody if you sit back and watch them constantly put their lives in danger? How is it that you detach but still try to show them and help them that there is a way out?
