Good girl

Created by

Good girl

My father is an alcoholic. When I was a child, I realized that something is wrong, but nobody explained it to me. My family acted as if everything was fine. That was why I stopped trusting myself. I started feeling lonely and different from the others. I tried to hide my thoughts and feelings with being the good girl. I always did what was expected and never attracted any attention. It worked until I got?to 14 and my friends started drinking alcohol. I felt I had to join them to stay unattended and "normal". But I hated it and felt broken inside. I suddenly realised what exactly was wrong within my family. When I met other young people, who had similar experiences and lived sober, I joined them and started living my own life. It was a relief!

Now I'm working with children of alcoholics, supporting them and their parents to break the vicious circle of addiction.
