Episode 5 of Euphoria on HBO called “Stand Still Like the Hummingbird”…
Give Zendaya all the Emmys.
The whole cast has been ACTING this season too.
people don’t realize how draining it is dealing with an addict.
it’s like when you see them all you remember is when they were good.
we always want to protect those we love.
when we’re forced to watch those we love circling the drain,
you literally feel powerless in the situation.
what do i do?
how do i fix this?
i think my biggest issue with addicts is…
Some of the people around them.
they are always coddling the addict.
they will let an addict destroy their lives while trying to save them.
i had to learn that some people don’t want to be saved.
their need to save themselves has to be bigger than the saver.
it’s the people-pleaser inside working overtime.
at some point,
you gotta let go even if it means the harsh reality that they don’t make it.
codling an addict isn’t going to make them clean.
stepping away isn’t gonna do it either.
this is not your fight to save them.
The addict has to get so down bad that THEY have to take the first steps.
or we have this continuous cycle of abuse:
lowkey: i know one thing,
she wouldn’t have been tearing up my spot like that.
i’d have to choose violence too.
