Good afternoon! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful recovering alcoholic/addict. I love this quote. I saw it on Facebook the other day and LOVE it. Once I got sober, I felt people would judge me for my past. But ya know what, once I realized the path I took, was the one God laid in front of me, I felt better. Everything happens for a reason, and I wouldn't be who I am today if I wouldn't have gone through what I went through. And once I accepted myself and what I had done, only then could I move forward. I could have sulked and felt sorry for myself, and hated myself for what I had done. Or I could learn from it, and grow. It was a hard thing to do. I knew I had a problem, but to actually admit it, accept it, and own it, and leave it behind, only then could I move forward. I felt as if a weight was lifted, I seriously do. I also don't really care what people think about me. I'm not out to please anyone else. I don't need to be accepted by others, I only need to accept myself. That's all for today. Have a great one!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
