Scars represent not injury, but healing. Scars are what make us whole again.
Recovering from sexual addiction is never easy, but it is always worth the effort. Recovery 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 is characteristic of addiction. When approached actively and honestly, sexual recovery creates unexpected levels of emotional maturity, and hope for a future filled with life-affirming relationships.
Just for Today: Ask yourself why you want to be sexually sober. Will important aspect(s) of your life improve with long-term sobriety?
