I am in recovery for addictions, which includes multiple hurts, habits and hang-ups.
Growing up I felt different, like I didn’t belong or wasn’t accepted. This brought low self-esteem and me wanting to be someone else, which made an easy path into drugs and alcohol for the next 25 years of my life, spiraling down into a deep, dark unforgiving hole. Eventually, I reached my bottom—my breaking point. This is where my Higher Power, Jesus Christ—began a new work in me.
Celebrate Recovery has helped me to evaluate my past, and to deal with the shame of the brokenness of my past. Having worked through forgiveness of my sins and having had a Spiritual Awakening, I now take what I’ve learned at CR, and the tools that I have been given, to help others who are struggling with hurts, habits and hang-ups.
