Before the year ends, I want to share some stuff about myself. In hopes, you won’t allow yourself to become a victim of those snatchers. Take heed ’cause the life you save may be your own! Read it and stay alert. . .
True, Short Story
Once upon a time, several years ago, I started dipping and dabbing in toxicity. Every day I’d taken a piece of it home with me. I played with it for so long toxicity became my best friend (or so I thought)! There were many-a-times; I wouldn’t even fall asleep (having so much fun). I just loved the way we were doing all kinds of insane, wild, messed up, and crazy things. Really, I hadn’t paid attention to that blob (growing and growing alongside me). I was all the way into it and never realized was broken into pieces. Perhaps, that’s why I felt no pain or cared about others.
Wasn’t till one night when I closed my eyes and woke up as another person . . . discovering it (toxicity) had invaded my body. Being heavily sedated and controlled that blob had become an image of me . . . have snatched my mind, heart, and facial features. So, that friendship I thought we had no longer existed. It then gained its title “Invasion of the Body Snatchers,” an enemy I’d come to fear.
While those “snatchers,” were busy trying to find others to corrupt, I finally made my escape. Know, it wasn’t easy, but I made it! So many of those others I’d hung with didn’t. It took years and years of rehab to recover. I’ve been cleaned and sober now for the last nine years.
Beware this could happen to you or someone you know! I only wish someone had given me a warning sign before the invasion attack. My wish for you this year.
I care about you and only want the best for you. So, I wish and pray that you will be alert to watch out for those body snatchers. Take heed and stay safe. Toxicity ain’t nothing to play with . . . it’ll a killer!
Happy Holidays . . . May you have a prosperous New Year.
