Recovery is a pretty weighty word. It means so many things: physical health, mental health, freedom from my own mind.
There’s this idea that recovery would be this perfect life where everything is easy to handle, but in reality it isn’t that way. Recovery is choosing to change. Recovery is trying even when it’s difficult. Recovery begins when you hate where you are in that moment and vow to change. Recovery is asking for help.
Recovery doesn’t mean you are fixed.
