Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer shared a photo meme of the Serenity Prayer with fans on Facebook earlier this week, and right away, tongues began wagging in regard to the prayer’s ties to Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Messer shared the photo on Tuesday, just two days before her ex-husband, Corey Simms, and his new wife, Miranda, will be seen confronting Messer about her possible drug problem on Teen Mom 2. On day later, on August 26, In Touch Weekly explained the Serenity Prayer is “often used in treatment [programs] for those struggling with alcohol or narcotics.”
The magazine also reminded fans that the Teen Mom 2 star reportedly entered a treatment program just two months ago. In June, a source revealed the news of Messer’s stint in rehab to In Touch Weekly.
“She’s ready for her 30-day stint of therapy. She’s being treated for depression and stress. She’s always put other people’s needs ahead of her own, and her mental health suffered because of it.”
According to the source, the Teen Mom 2 star had flown to the facility weeks earlier in hopes of addressing her issues, but didn’t stay due to her ex-husband’s custody threats. Now, however, the Teen Mom 2 star and her ex-husband are said to be in a better place, and have agreed to do what’s best for their twin girls, Ali and Aleeah, 5.
“They’ve worked everything out and everyone agrees that it’s best for the girls to be with Leah and best for Leah to take the time to get well.”
The full Serenity Prayer is as follows, according to Wikipedia.
“God, give me grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, courage to change the things which should be changed, and the wisdom to distinguish the one from the other… Living one day at a time, enjoying one moment at a time, accepting hardship as a pathway to peace, taking, as Jesus did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it, trusting that You will make all things right, if I surrender to Your will, so that I may be reasonably happy in this life, and supremely happy with You forever in the next.”
However, when used in Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, the full prayer is not typically cited. Instead, as Sober Recovery noted, addicts only recite the portion of the prayer shared in the Teen Mom 2 star’s Facebook post.
