Be all in or get all out

This seems to be the definition of 2021 so far. Since the first month, 2021 seemed to be the next level of what 2020 began. For many of us, 2021 continues to be the transforming path that the pandemic brought.

This year showed me how much 2020 changed me. I lost people that I loved and if 2 years ago or even last year I would have tried to keep them, well this year I just let them go. No explanation, no goodbye, no heartache. A closed door and that’s it.

I started to lose weight and proved to myself that as long as I am disciplined and focused, I can achieve everything. But the most important thing is that the key to happiness is to love and respect yourself first. Asking or expecting things from the wrong people will only damage you. Being an option is not a choice. Learn to be a priority, not an option. Don’t forget that the winner takes it all. And you are not a loser.

Don’t give anyone the chance to take the control of your life. No one is allowed to tell you what you can do or not. Almost three weeks ago, I got the vaccine for Covid 19 and some of my friends were like ” Oh you must crazy/stupid and so on for doing it and for believing in this virus”. Well, I don’t care. I put myself and my family above anyone else. So if I chose to do it, any opinion regarding my choice is worthless. Do you want anything? Go for it. It is better to get rejected or lose than regret that you didn’t do it.

Life is too short and beautiful. There are so many opportunities and things to do. Give the best of yourself always and don’t be afraid of what may happen. If it fails, it was a lesson. But what if you win? Be all in or get all out… Don’t accept to be in the middle when you can be the greatest. Have a lovely day everybody!

“Drugs destroyed my life”

I needed to take some time off from everything. The past month was a huge life lesson. A lesson that thought me how a single moment can destroy your life.

How it all started ? Like this. I had a childhood friend:very nice, well-behaved guy. He was able to move the mountains for his dreams. His family situation was never Ok, but he never stopped fighting for himself and his grandma who raised him.(his parents are divorced and he loved to stay more with his grandma due to a home situation).

Our roads separated when we moved to different countries. He was working in popular restaurants and had a dream to win a cooking contest. He did it. And that was the moment which changed his life. He won an important amount of money and was having a lot of plans.The last time I met him was 4 years ago after he won it. He told me about what he wants to do further and was very happy. But after one year, he moved back in Romania and entered an entourage which literally destroyed him. He changed completely towards everyone and forgot about his hometown friends. I tried to contact him several times, with no outcome… Little we or his family knew that in his entourage, drugs were an ordinary thing 😦

Last year, his grandma died. It was the “end” of his life and his career. During his funeral, he was on drugs, but no one knew. He attacked a beggar, but people thought it was due to his sorrow caused by the loss. His father took him home and he jumped on the window to escape. That night, he killed a woman. A stranger.He hit her with extreme aggressivity until she died… The last month was his trial. He received 10 years of prison. His last words when he said goodbye to us were”Drugs destroyed my life”

Guys, I had known and still know people dealing with drug addiction. I lost friends (took their lives) because of this. The reasons for using drugs? Mainly entourage.They don’t want to look stupid in front of their friends. Or family problems.

Please ask for help. Drugs are not healing, are destroying:dreams. lives, families, EVERYTHING. One single moment destroyed my friend’s life. Only one. He can’t remember how he hit her or how he fell asleep next to her. The only thing he remembers is that while he was drugged, he had the impression that demons are following him.

Drug addiction can be healed. In time and with specialist support, there is a way to give up. Just try. Don’t leave drugs to destroy your life too. If not for you, do for the people you love and for the dreams you have. And remember that the night is the darkest before the dawn. There is always hope.
