What's A Lifestyle Designer?

“I know I have greatness within me… I want to be great, I just don’t know how to be great.” Those are the words I said to my mom, as I asked her for help.

Habit saying “I’m Sorry” in early Addiction Recovery

Early on in addiction recovery many struggle with the guilt, embarrassment, loathing, fear, anxiety, confusion, and always apologizing for it. Many struggle with saying the words: “I’m sorry.” They don’t struggle saying it by not saying, either. Most struggle with saying the words “I’m Sorry” too much and too often.
