What I Wish Someone Had Told Me - Part 2: You Have Intrinsic Value and Worth

On Part 2 of our "What I Wish Someone Had Told Me" series, Jodi sits down with Kathy Bazaar to get a first-hand perspective from a recovering alcoholic. Once consumed by her addiction, Kathy now coaches other addicts through recovery as a Peer Recovery Supporter for OhioGuidestone.

Kathy's insight about what she wishes someone would have told her many years ago sheds light on a fundamental problem surrounding addiction in our society: open communication.

Kathy wishes someone had explained to her what addiction was so that, as a child, she would've better understood her father.

Kathy wishes someone had informed her that addictive personalities can be inherited and that she may be at greater risk because of her family history.

But most importantly, Kathy wishes someone had told her when she was young that she had intrinsic worth and value. So many youth journey through their developmental years feeling like they don't matter and that no one cares about them. We need to build a generation of young people who recognize that they matter, they have a purpose, and they have greatness within.
