…takes a long time. Longer than any of us want, or think we need, or hope for.
Which is why, often, we get discouraged. Thoughts plague our minds more than we expect, habits die hard, and then come back to life the minute we let our guard down. People try to understand, and fail, which makes us feel alone and unloved. Recovery is up and down, but the downs often come at the most inconvenient, the most unwanted times. Recovery is a process, not a destination, and that becomes maddening when we think that we have arrived, only to be knocked flat on our faces.
It takes just as long to recover as it does to even come to the conclusion that we even want to recover. And even then, our minds become filled with doubt, regret, insecurity. Keep in mind that this is all we’ve known for years, this is what has defined us, and has become how we express ourselves, how we value ourselves and our ability to have self-control.
So no, recovery is not easy. No, it is not short. Yes, it takes more time and effort than any of us care to admit, because when we admit it, we acknowledge the fear that maybe we won’t be graced with enough time to get better.
Every single day is a new day to fight. Maybe you’re at the point where you’re weighing the possibility of recovery. Maybe you don’t know if you want it. Maybe you’re in the midst of it, struggling through every single morsel that you put in your body.
Wherever you are at, I want you to know that you are worth it. You are beautiful. And you are loved.
This is wonderful and so true.
