I was homeless. I was using any drug I could get my hands on. In treatment, I found a place where I belonged, where I made friends, and where I felt love that filled the void in me. Now two years into recovery, my heartache has turned into happiness.
I do not regret being addicted. Because in recovery, my level of awareness has risen to a level I never thought possible. Today I am able to feel fully, and to properly understand those feelings.
I’m still learning who I am. But I’m starting to like myself, maybe even love myself, so much more than before. I can finally start being the mother both of my daughters need, want and deserve. I am so grateful for that.
