Getting to Know Myself

  • Location: Spokane,
I grew up in an environment that did not nurture weakness or flaws of any kind. I was always very hard on everyone in my life, including myself, and perfect was never going to be good enough. I struggled with food and alcohol and needed to work harder than everyone around me for my life to matter. I could not see how toxic my life was until I quit drinking. It will be five years this May. Since that day I have lost over 100 pounds, quit smoking, stopped taking cholesterol meds, and stopped taking diabetic meds. The most rewarding experience has just been getting to know myself.
