When we are truly working an honest program of recovery...the promises are real!! "No more shame, be proud of who you are."There is nothing to be ashamed of any longer. The internal moral compass becomes balanced. We no longer hurt ourselves or others. "Choose well to live well"
Have compassion for those who are suffering - because addicts truly are living in hell and just need a compassionate helping hand to make it out. Yes, they hurt other people - but it's because they are hurting so badly themselves.
