Recovery and Health website is about recovering and discovering who you were created to be.   If while growing up you were sent negative messages that hindered your self-image, you may have learned to survive rather than thrive.   Unfortunately, the coping and survival skills learned to survive as a child may be crippling you as an adult.  I want you to know that if you learn to positively affirm yourself you will build a positive self-image.  You will become aware of another way to look at the world, and a different way to respond to life and to others.  You will begin to change your world!

 My first challenge to you is to identify how you see the world today.  Do you see others as safe, friendly, welcoming, approachable?  Or do you see them as unfriendly, hostile, unsafe, and judgmental?  Do you feel you often view the world not as an adult, but as a child who finds it difficult to make decisions, basing your choices on keeping ‘safe’ and others liking you?  You can begin to see yourself as an adult who can comfortably function and make life choices that enhance your life and the lives of others.
