Scars represent not injury, but healing. Scars are what make us whole again.
Healing from sexual addiction brings self-knowledge, integrity, and a desire to become vulnerable (to be known for who one truly is, warts and all). This new approach to life slowly but steadily replaces the double-life that we have been living. When approached actively and honestly, sexual recovery creates unexpected levels of emotional maturity and hope for a future filled with life-affirming friendships and loving romantic relationships. Recovering from sexual addiction is not easy, but it is always worth the effort.
