Their love scares me to death. How can they love someone like me? Can I love them back? Pay them back? It might be too late! I relate to this a lot. As an addict, I sometimes feel like I’m unworthy of love. Like I’m some lesser being that doesn’t deserve it. But it’s so important to remember that our addictions don’t define us. We’re deserving and worthy of love simply because we’re human beings. There’s nothing we need to do (or not do) to deserve being loved, much less by our own parents! And love is not something we need to “pay back”, nor is it something you need to “prove”. I’m sure you love your parents as much as they love you, and there’s nothing you need to do to prove it to them. The very fact that they’re your parents is enough proof that you love them. I want you to know that you’re loved and that you’re worthy of being loved, and that nothing you do will change that. We as a community all love you! Chin up, bro.
