YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE

Being an addict I always wished someone would believe in me. I remember thinking to myself
“WHY CAN’T SOMEONE JUST BELIEVE IN ME FOR ONCE”
It’s not a good feeling when no one believes you or in you. I did so much damage, lied so many times that everyone around me lost faith in me. All hope of me ever changing was gone.

Even worse, I lost all hope in myself. I didn’t believe in myself and as a result I continued on my path of destruction. I could not convince myself that I could change. I didn’t think I could so I stopped trying.

THAT WAS THEN

Since starting this journey in recovery I have come to believe in myself. It didn’t just happen over night, it took and still takes some work. My self esteem is building and I am feeling like

NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.

I owe this new found belief to the power of WE and of course my HP. The fellowship loved me when I didn’t love myself and has taught me how to begin to love myself. They believed in me when I was at my worse and they loved me back to life. I am grateful for the people in my network who show me how, by example.

They are living proof that I am not alone and I truly feel it everyday that I keep coming back.

Peace and Blessings
