It is an honor to be a part of such an impactful group of men - in the MS chat.

Howdy, my brothers.

Wow a great post. It takes a lot of courage to come here to MS.
It takes a lot of hurt, pain & tears, to be here. To connect to others who not only hear our cries, our fears, our shame, our worthlessness. But while in their own pain. They come to here to offer themselfs to others in pain & shame, and in doing so they give each of us hope & love.

We are more than a faceless man & name on a computer screen.

We are brothers. We are trying to become survivors. We are men whom are trying to lead their lost boy (inner child) from the depths of darkness into the sunshine forever into eternity.

And with each step forward from the darkness. It does get better. It does for me.

And i thank each & everyone of you for helping this old boy along.

Heal well my brothers, heal well.

"I will take that lost boys hand, and i will lead him from the depths of darkness, into the sunshine, forever into eternity."

Been a week since I posted this and I see men all around me getting better. There are incredibly brave men here we all know tackling this issue and sliding into home plate head first without a helmet.

Ask men here with screen names like Teebone21, Whiskers, Tyler, Alex22, Castle, KB4 and others and they will tell you they are making progress.

Are there bruises along the way....hell yea. Is it worth it all. F*ck yea.

New guys join us every day. Let them know that this is worth it, that we are worth it.

No way my life will be defined by a monster I knew when I was 10, 11, & 12.

My life and yours will be define by the acts of kidness we
make here and in our homes everyday.

It does get better because I work every day to make it better.
I pray to God you each can feel that as well.

Heal well all.

Another week down. Nothing really special about the week....the weather stinks, the Packer's won, work is work, and our home is as crazy as ever.

Here at MS new guys joined, some who have been here a bit had a "Break-Through" moment, others stubled or hit walls.

I think just not giving up or giving in matters. We each get a fresh shot at a better way every 24 hours.

It truly gets better when you do realize that despite the risks of being bruised along the way, every day in recovery is a chance to heal and find peace....

Be well Brothers.
