For much of my life I have contended with the ebbs and flows of emotional stress, depression, anxiety, and self-loathing.
But my biggest challenge has been being married to a man who struggles with addiction.
The short term gain was that, through my obsession with his issues, I got to escape from all that had previously troubled me. But in the long term it sent me on a path of deep codependency.
The course I took was steeped in the lessons from codependent behaviors wherein I focused solely on those things outside of myself. By choice or by mandate, this was exactly the path I needed to take, ultimately leading me to freedom.
Freedom from obsessing over my husband's demons.
Freedom to grow as my own person - the one I had forgotten a decade ago.
Freedom to learn from the successes and failures that I have experienced in my life with an addict.
I now share what I have learned with the world, and I have made it my life's purpose to help guide you, one moment at a time, to freedom and a life you love.
I will never tell you to leave anyone; that decision is entirely up to you. The number one premise in Love & Addicts is LOVE. This is true, whether you just found out that your loved one is using or whether you have been involved with an addict for years.
It is our mission to help you heal and for you to always lead the way with your heart.
