I was at a meeting about 2 weeks ago and the topic was (honesty)I didn't want to comment because I new I would have to admit that I'm a liar & a theif..it's hard to admit this but I did..I don't know to what degree others understood why I said this and I didn't explain it..but I will here I love this site because it allows me to be express myself...the only other place I have found I can be totaly honest is When I go to confession..I have not found that any other place..this site makes it easy for me to say the things I can't share with others and not feel like I'm the worst person on earth..as I have shared before I have been seperated from my husband since April of 2005, it has been a very hard relationship to let go of but it's getting better..in our relationship I pretty much did everything he may have worked 6 months with our 3 1/2 yr relationship..after about 2 yrs I really began to stress out about taking care of everything and him doing nothing but drinking and drugging & messing around...he wouldn't get a job and expected me to pay all the bills and take care of his habit which I did for awhile..as time passed I began stealling to be able to afford everything and as our relationship ended I continued to steal and have gotten caught twice this last time was it..I said I can't do this anymore..I know I need help..I may not drink or use drugs but I think I'm an addict all the same I just do other things like being co-dependant,stealing, eating,smoking-quit, ect..it's been one thing after another...I have worked hard to get were I'm and I just can't give up on myself..I needed to share this with everyone here...being honest and getting everything out is healing for me..which is what I need to do to stop doing what I'm doing...Angle1

I just wanted to commend you for your courage to come clean about your secret, and for taking responsibility for changing your life!!

I know from experience that it's really hard to reveal the part of yourself that you're ashamed of, but I also know how healing that can be. It was a turning point for me...to face my shame and come out still standing!

The nice thing I learned is that who I am is NOT defined by my behaviour. I am not my worst mistake...I am just a person like everyone else...no better and certainly no worse! And other people make mistakes just like I do. The only difference between the "healthy" ones and me is that they don't let their worst moments define their identity and dictate their value. they just call it a mistake and do the work to not make the same one again.

Good for you, and enjoy the ride from this point forward...if you can face the worst of yourself, and have the confidence and courage to own it, you are well on your way to healthier, happier life!!!
