See this girl below?
She was another reason for my recovery.
She talked to me about it. She shared her own struggles. She increased my desire for vulnerability. I’m the kind of girl who is good at ‘stuffing it’, and trust me, that’s not a good thing to be ‘good at’, but my friend Hannah made me feel like I could be myself. She provided a listening ear for me to pour out my frustrations and insecurities, that would have seemed silly if I was talking to someone else, and she always prodded me further and farther upward on the road to recovery.
What do I love about her? She’s tender, sweet, loving, and a rock of a friend. Her smile is contagious. Her joy is vibrant, and her love for Jesus is evident.
How have you surrounded yourself with friends during recovery? Did you find that you made friends and lost some in the midst of recovery?
