I’ve always felt that I had a strong sense of loyalty to others I’ve gotten to know well in a short period of time or felt committed to tasks or work that align with my morals or value system. However, the result of my dedication isn’t just about the quality of work or the quantity of friends I make, for me it’s about being productive, having a sense of worth and purpose, and maintaining and pursuing new adventures. My addiction had me dedicated to a life not worth living. Today, I can say I view life much differently. I have my up’s and down’s but I don’t give up.
