Tomorrow I have to miss some work to take my son to pay some of his fines. He is already stressing about it. Some of the places he has to go to pay fines he has outstanding warrants. He is hoping that they just take his money and he gets to go, I don't know, it is his issue. Next week he has a court date on revoking his probation for not paying his fines in one jurisdiction. He is hoping that by paying tomorrow they will not revoke his probation.
I can see the stress he has when I talk to him about these things. Before he would have been using due to the stress. In the environment he is in now I hope the intense structure helps him not to use.
My only advice to him was that he legitimately has these fines and he did commit the acts that got him to this point. It is no use in beating yourself up over this, can't change the past, you just take what happens, make the best of it and live it one day at a time. You don't like all of this then don't do the things that put you in these positions again. Try learning from your mistakes instead of repeating them.
