I never thought I could be a good person

Since I first got here, I feel like I am a completely different person. I have goals for myself for the first time, and I actually see myself doing something meaningful. I’ve developed a new sense of respect and understanding for myself and other people that I never had before. Honestly when I first got here, I planned on smoking weed and doing a few other drugs, like Xanax and Oxys, when I got home. I didn’t believe this program would really do this much for me. Now, I’ve decided not to even go home, and I want to stay here and intern. So far, this program has changed my life in the best way possible and I know there is still more to come. I never thought I could be a good person or that I would think about devoting my time to helping other people; like I want to do now. Deciding to come to Sunshine Summit Lodge was the best choice I’ve ever made for myself.

One thought on “I never thought I could be a good person

  1. I also never thought I could be a good person again. I honestly didn’t know what to expect upon coming to this program, I had been through one other treatment program before this one and was right back to using drugs after completing that program. After completing the sauna part of this program I felt a lot better than I had in a long time and then writing up my ow’s and writing down all the bad things I had done over the years and then upon completing the program I felt like a new person again!
