You want to keep feeling the way you’re feeling right now. Well, just keep on doing what you’re doing. If you want to feel better… figure out how you can serve something other than your own ego. So, you made a mistake. So Lacey pulled one over on you. So the custody judge thought josh was a better parent, okay. What are you gonna do about it? You’re gonna drink yourself to death? So Augie has no mother at all?
You’re drunk. And not because the world did it to you. Or because Wilson George turned out to be innocent. Or Lacey turned out to be guilty. You’re drunk because it’s the way you choose to handle it. And if you don’t change. Guess what? Nothing changes.
You’re a great and special person, Cate. But not for any of the reasons you think. Not because you’re a great lawyer. Or you’re pretty. Or because you win in court.
What’s so great about me?
It’s something you need to figure out for yourself.
One of my sponsor’s favorite saying is “you can’t change the wind. But you can adjust the sail.” It’s been a pretty rough year recently. Someday it’s all I can do, to hang on and hold my head up high, so I can see the damn sails without getting my head knocked off, but I’m here. Again. Still. Gratitude’s always been really hard. But I want to say thanks. I won’t be here without you.
