I'm learning how to stand up for myself and trust myself. I'm learning that I can have a happy life in spite of a less than perfect childhood. Today, I can trust the process of recovery to show me more of how I was affected by my childhood and in what ways it's up to me now to be my own guardian. My parents are not perfect. Just like I'm not perfect. They were hurt in their childhoods too. We are all just trying our best to make it. I'm choosing, with the help of a recovery program and my higher power, to not just survive, but to live a life beyond my wildest dreams.
I'm just a traveler, a dreamer, like you.
