When starting your recovery, it is important to have a positive leader in your life. There has been so many times where we’ve been influenced by the wrong people that were doing bad things. They lead us to bad choices. Now in recovery you need to have a positive leader such as a sponsor that helps you charge through the rough times and doesn’t let you give up. Someone who has walked your path before, multiple times, and has tried every which way direction you can go and already knows the outcome of any situation. Having this leader or guide will help you through the steps, that one day you can help lead someone else through.
