I want you to know that despite all this and even more, you are worthy of love and worthy to succeed in life. I genuinely believe that no matter where the starting point of your recovery journey is, it is possible that you can
…have a close relationship with God.
…become the spouse and parent you’ve always wanted to be.
…learn ways to redirect those negative and busy thoughts that keep you captive.
…learn coping skills to make friends with all your feelings and deal with them effectively.
…figure out who you really are.
…find and work in a meaningful career.
…learn to reduce any debt and work towards financial freedom.
…recover and your body can heal over time.
…feel beautiful again.
…gain a sense of control.
…become a great role model for others.
I want to see all of these things and more to become true in your life. Take the next step and come out of hiding. Reach out to a friend, support group or counselor.
