There is such a thing as a high-functioning alcoholic, but that is not to say the members of your family are that. I think genetics plays a role in how our bodies process alcohol. I wrote this in response to a prompt in college…it’s not altogether true, but I liked the poem.

One thing I love about poetry is that you can reach and identify with so many people. I am always trying on new “shoes.” (Walking a mile in their shoes — whoever said that.)

I hope you FOUND your self- love. :) Thanks for reading and for commenting.
