I don't want to out anyone who's confessed, either personally or privately- here or in real life - that they need help, that their lives are messy. But to them, and to everyone else this might affect:

Psalm 51:17

"My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise."

The psalmist was pointing out that God didn't want people going out and breaking things, or each other, in an attempt to please. That what God wants is for us to recognize that however good we might be in so many ways - we're all broken, to at least some degree, and at least somehow. And taking that to a higher power to fix - whether that's just feeling down that day, or the grip of alcoholism, or simply not feeling like you matter to anyone and what's the whole point - is what God wants.

And any minister of God, be it a simple parishioner or an ordained Bishop - should want to help you in any way he or she can.

It's okay if things aren't going okay. Hang in there.
