The whole world has been against her. She’s become more of a punch line than a celebrity. Instead of celebrating with Lindsay about the small victories as you should with any type of addict (my step father was an alcoholic for 10 years) people have joked about how she can’t do it. I would cry too if someone finally told me to celebrate after spending so long being a joke.
We need to do this with everyone recovering from something. Talk about it; celebrate the victories more than you might think you should, and offer those who relapsed more comfort than you might think they deserve.
This is beautiful and is still giving me chills as I write this. You go, Lindsay! :)
