Anybody else out there suffer from low self worth? Hard to say where it comes from but this overwhelming feeling of low self worth seems fairly common amongst those who struggle with drugs and alcohol abuse. Why is that? What can we do about it? How do we overcome low self worth? It’s a good question. Let’s talk about it.
Our topic this week is inspired by an amazing warstory from Lauren! Lauren always had low self worth and struggled to like who she was. Having never really fit in, she found solace in a group of friends that liked her for what she could do rather than for who she was. She quickly got into drugs and turned to crime to feed her addiction. Eventually she would wind up homeless, raising a child on her own. When custody of her child was threatened she was finally able to surrender to a spiritual solution. Today she proves her worth to herself through her actions and works to help others who struggle in the same way she did.
Thank you Lauren for telling your incredible story!!
