Since being in the program, God taught me to love and accept myself and that I belong to Him. God has given me relaxation, comfort, and forgiveness so I can forgive others. When I first got to Springboard I had a lot of hatred and resentment. But now I am learning to forgive and love others. Before Springboard, I was often using drugs and wanting to escape reality, but now I feel like being in the moment and staying sober.
