About this meeting
Join **Recovery Tribe** for "Our Journey in Recovery: Embracing Happiness Beyond Approval," a transformative workshop focused on personal recovery and finding true happiness from within. This meeting is dedicated to those who have faced the challenges of addiction and mental health and want to explore the concept that the key to lasting recovery lies in focusing on their own journey and happiness, rather than seeking the approval of others. In this workshop, we will explore ways to develop a genuine belief that we deserve the best life we want. Through shared experiences and collective support, we’ll discuss practical strategies to cultivate self-worth and embrace a fulfilling life in recovery. Our supportive recovery community will offer a safe space for everyone to share their stories, concerns, and struggles. Together, we will heal and grow, understanding that while others may not fully grasp our journey, we do. Let's support each other in achieving happiness and sobriety for ourselves, not for anyone else. Please be sure to see workshop outline and resources as pdf before Sunday if you wish!

About the host
Hi! As a Certified Peer Support Specialist, I draw from my own long-term recovery, which has included both success and setbacks. My journey has involved overcoming addiction, mental and emotional illness, and battling low self-esteem and self-worth. As someone who identifies as LGBTQ, I am committed to supporting all communities and cultures. The trauma we experience from our addictions, people, institutions, and relationships can hold us back from living the life we truly deserve and desire, forcing us to settle for less. Yet, the power to change resides in our stories and our journeys. By sharing my experiences, you may find connections that resonate with you, and together, we can uncover the answers within yourself to achieve the life you deserve. This is where true freedom lies. I am would be honored to join you on your path of transformation, growth and freedom! On a sidenote, I am a dog lover, enjoy traveling and meeting new people, and I’m absolutely hooked on camping!
Motivation for help
My motivation to be a Peer Supporter comes from my own journey through pain and recovery to freedom. Having faced addiction, alcoholism, and mental health struggles, I understand the challenges others face and the importance of support. I genuinely enjoy helping people, sharing my experiences, and offering hope to those who are struggling. My goal is to use my story to inspire others on their path to healing and recovery.
