"Shame"-Word of the Week

Shame

Throughout my addiction Ive done many shameful things and I was never able to take an honest look at myself until I made the decision to pursue recovery. Since making that decision I've had to uncover all parts of myself, good and bad, in order to have a healthy ego and come closer to my true self. One detail I've had to face, and one that undermines further progress is shame. However, by consistently working on myself, spot checking myself, and through working a program I've been able to handle and deal with that shame and turn it into motivation and determination to rebuild relationships with others, and most importantly, myself.
