  1. Well, yes I actually believe that he did come down from heaven and did tell and show us that he loves us all, but..it is not my intention to get into a theological discussion here. And 12-steps groups are not religious organisations...they are very much about how you describe a group above, open-minded, free-thinking, positive, sharing your experience and strength and hope with other people. There are suggestions in the program which you can use to work on your own recovery, but it is completely up to yourself what and how much you want to use of those suggestions. I do not like dogma's at all actually, I am very much a free-thinking person. But in my thinking processes I have discovered some wonderful principles that have made me a much much happier person through the years... Wishing you all the very best, and the best wish I can give someone is to say God bless you. But you are of course completely free to deject this wish from me to you.... Beatrice
  2. What has helped me a lot is to get into a self-help group, where I felt I wasn't alone, and there were people struggling with the same issues, and there was a good program that you could work on, in your own pace. I was (and I continue to go, as maintenance) in a 12-step group. You could check out Codependents Anonymous. What Is Co-Dependents Anonymous? 'Co-Dependents Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women whose common purpose is to develop healthy relationships. The only requirement for membership is a desire for healthy and loving relationships.' link removed I know you feel hopeless at the moment, and I know how aweful that feels. Feelings can overwhelm you and make you look at things through their frame. I have felt like that for years. But I have come out of it, by the loving acceptance of the people in the self-help group, and by changing my own thinking, little by little, one day at a time. Hold on. God really loves you. Beatrice
  3. Hi, I am so sorry that you feel so bad at the moment, (or are you feeling a bit better now?). But...I dó know that there ís hope for you. Even if you do not feel it yourself at the moment. I recognize a lot of what you write, from myself a number of years ago. But now I live a happy, connected life. It is a process of recovery though.... of learning to love yourself, of gaining self-confidence, of getting friends, IT REALLY IS POSSIBLE!!! FOR YOU TOO! If only you are willing to work on your recovery. God bless you (I have the deep conviction that God loves you and wants to bless you)
