I've struggled with hurts, hang-ups and habits, and there's been a lot of improvement for me. I've been doing the 12 Steps of Celebrate Recovery. Part of my continued healing is that I share with others the solution.

1: We admitted we were powerless over our addictions and compulsive behaviors--that our lives had become unmanageable.

2: We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity.

3: We made a decision to turn our lives and our wills over to the care of God.

4: We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.

5: We admitted to God, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.

6: We were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.

7: We humbly asked Him to remove all our shortcomings.

8: We made a list of all persons we had harmed and became willing to make amends to all of them.

9: We made direct amends to such people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

10: We continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong, promptly admitted it.

11: We sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.

12: Having had a spiritual experience as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

Celebrate Recovery, a fellowship of people recovering from hurts, hang-ups and habits.

The burden is made to fit the shoulders. Take heart. You are much stronger than you give yourself credit for. Much stronger!!  Now..reality is that the past has passed. Nothing to be done there. The only time is now. This moment. WRITE DOWN A PLAN OF ACTION. See how I emphasised that love? WRITE it down. This may include arranging meetings with services and being forthright and frank with them. This may hurt your pride. Pride is useless usually unless its pride in achievements to show you what you can do. Write the wish list. Break it down into tiny doable steps and perform five deeds on your list per day. In five weeks you will feel the optimism of opportunity. In five months you will be on a firm and good path. In five years you will have a transformed existence with success joy and love with a greater future to look forward to.

Hi there! Thank you for sharing your story with us. I know it is hard to be in your situation right now. Please do not despair and continue to seek for help in your area. I believe in the kindness of other people and so do not be ashamed to ask for help. Even if you repeatedly ask for it, know that people will extend their hands to help you. Now on the next steps... while I know you are doing quite a lot these days, you still need to plan out what you are going to do next. Speak to right people in your community (i.e. councillor, priest, social worker, etc.) and listen to their advise and learn from each person you encounter. Ask questions about where you can find a job, better health care, better places to live. You have already opened yourself here so I encourage you to talk about it and seek for the right help your family needs. You are very strong but you have to believe that first. I know you have the will to get through this otherwise you would not have sought out for help in the internet.
