Good morning! My name is Lauren, and I'm a grateful, recovering alcoholic/addict. Forgiveness is a big step in recovery. A lot of peope forgave me, God forgave me, but me forgiving myself was a big step. there were a lot of things I could forgive myself for, but there were still some things I struggled with. But until I spilled my guts, and did my 4th and 5th step, and got it all out there, and told my sponsor, it was hard. Then I had to work on forgiving myself. I had done a lot of bad things. But I am supposed to forgive as God as forgiven us, and that means MYSELF too! Once I brought everything to the surface, I realized I had to let those feeling of not being good enough go, and I could love myself again. I was worth it, but only by the grace of God. Without Him I am nothing. He is the one who saved me. So I had to stop beating myself up about the past. It made me who I am today. I didn't completely forget about it, but it doesn't eat me up inside today, like it used to. That's all I have for today! Have a great one! Don't forget to check out my Store. I now have some of my photographs for sale as well! You can also see more of my work on my facebook page. (You might have to scroll down a bit, but a do some usually every day or every other day.) Don't forget to sign up for the drawing too!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
