I think we sometimes forget why we are here. All of us. The purpose of this self directed workshop and online support is summed up beautifully in these few sentences:

"Support, in a recovery based environment, is never a crutch or a situation in which one person defines or dictates the outcome. Mutual support is a process in which the people in the relationship strive to use the relationship to become fuller richer human beings. Although we all come to relationships with some assumptions, support works best when both people are willing to grow and change."

Thank you for posting that Coach Mel. That is so true in any relationship.
