I am in recovery for co-dependency, feelings of inadequacy, and low self-esteem.

Being “just me” never seemed to be good enough.  I spent years trying to overcompensate for my feelings of inadequacy and a lack of self-esteem.  In high school, I did classmates’ homework; in college, I bought the beers at the bar; and in later years, I developed even more negative behaviors.   I attempted to resolve my emotional needs, but my attempts were short-lived, and my needs came back with more intensity.  I trusted few people.  I was sure that if everyone around me knew the “real me” and how broken I was, they would turn their backs on me–How could they love me?  I hit bottom and came face-to-face with God, family, friends and myself and began my recovery.

Celebrate Recovery has given me the tools to recover in a safe and loving environment.  Since the first day I walked into a CR meeting, I have felt love and acceptance and have never experienced the judgmental attitudes I expected and received from anyone who knew who I really was, and the things I had done.  If it were not for the unconditional, redeeming love of Christ shown to me by my Celebrate Recovery Family (Forever), I would not be where I am today:  On the Road to Recovery!
