recovering from abuse, rejection, shame, guilt, depression, addiction, anxiety, fear....
My Dad said I was a 'dead loss' when I was about 4. He was an alcoholic under the influence but I had no grounds to question him so I grew up believing that. I didn't know what a real man was so stumbled around for years trying to make sense of it all. I accepted Christ when 17 and very slowly things have been changing for the better. Still a long long way to go but at last at 44 years I'm starting to enjoy the journey - at least the gain is sort of outweighing the pain.
