For many years I ingested so many chemicals to just make myself feel comfortable about who I was or wasn’t. And after putting the plug in the jug, there was much work to be done in order to figure out why I felt the way I did about a lot of things about myself.
Today, generally speaking, I feel pretty comfortable in my own skin. It’s not a 100% of the time thing, but I’ve been given the tools to help me work through any feelings of insecurity, failure, or inadequacy that my brain tries to trick me into believing is the truth about myself. By staying connected to my program of recovery, I’m able to keep a healthy perspective on what it was like, what happened and what it’s truly like now. I wouldn’t change a thing for the life that I have. Even in the most uncomfortable moments.
