Grow From It

Don’t let your past damage your future. Take it as a learning experience and grow from it. Trust me when I say nothing good comes from holding on to pain … Just look at me .. Pain almost killed me … don’t be like me … be better.

Remember love yourself first!!

It’s How We Heal

Joe Rogan and Wim Hof on Overcoming Depression, Anxiety and PTSD

I’ve always had anxiety. To calm it down, I used to get wasted or spend money trying to cover it up with something else. Seven months ago, I went sober and am learning how to listen compassionately to my inner anxious voices. What I’ve learned is that it’s always about shame or fear. What I’m learning is that I can face those fears and resolve them instead of trying to sweep them away.

The parts of myself that emerged when I was drunk were parts I loved but was scared to show. Now, I’m learning to love my whole self, all the time. I never thought I had a substance abuse problem, but recovering is transforming my life.

Love all the parts of you. They deserve it. It’s how we heal.
