    My name is Jackie long and I have two yrs and two months in personal long term recovery. I chose recovery because I was tired of the self perpetuated lifestyle of victimization. I lived with the idea that because I was abused (sexually, physically, and psychologically) both in and out of foster care system that my life was meaningless, and my value was nill. The correctional system was tiring and the homelessness was taking it’s toll. I needed more value than the dollar amount that I had set for myself and I came to realize it had to start internally. I never could have imagined just how valuable I really was.
