One of the most difficult things in life is learning how to love yourself. I seemed to always struggle with this concept even as a young girl. I would listen to the people around me and feel that I didn't measure up or that I wasn't good enough for the love they had for me. I would even push away those that would attempt to show me love. I would put these unrealistic expectations on people and then quickly blame myself or them when life didn't quite go the way I imagined it would. After Recovering from a 20 year addiction from Opioids and Benzos I learned that love was an inside job and until I learned to love myself I was also incapable of loving others. It was a process that first started with admittance and accountability. Once I was able to be accountable for my actions I could then start to work on Samantha, Today I am Honest, I Have Integrity, Always Caring, and Most Importantly Human.
