Recovery is not a test. There is no “pass” or “fail” There is no “right” or “wrong” No one is standing over judging every move that you make; only your disorder is criticising and comparing you and your decisions to other people.
Recovery is a way of life. It is a choice and a decision that you need to make every single day. It is both a feeling and an action which encompasses every single sense. It is a decision to not let a diagnosis define you; to show that you are not a label or a statistic; to prove them wrong.
Recovery is another opportunity. We are all here for a reason and recovery is offering you that chance to find it. You are an individual with feelings and thoughts, beliefs and opinions. The world is at your fingertips and you have another chance. Another chance to show the world who you are. There is a whole lifetime ahead of you right now; you can do anything that you set your heart on.
Life is magical. Life is beautiful. Life is simply amazing.
You can do things differently. You can make a difference. You can be the change.
