The Big Lie that I’ve allowed myself to believe is that I was a piece of trash and would never amount to anything in life. This came after many years of drug use. I did a lot of things wrong in my life, living on the edge. I stole, I lied, practically sold my soul to support my habit. These are things I’m not proud of. I carried around all this guilt and shame for many, many years. I allowed drugs to control my whole life. That’s not how I was brought up to be. During my troubled times, I seemed to put God on the back burner. Once I learned to surrender to my disease, I could look myself in the mirror. God could forgive me of all the horrible things that drugs allowed me to do. With the help of The Well, I began to feel whole once again. As time went on, I realized that I was a good, loving woman of God.
