Recovery is the space in between. The peaceful moments that separate anxiety attacks and depressive episodes.
Recovery is knowing you may go through it all again, but understanding you will come out the other side stronger and more equipped to deal with it the next time.
Recovery is learning about yourself and what makes you tick. Learning your triggers, knowing the warning signs so you can take yourself out of the situation while the power is still yours; before the depression or the panic takes the reigns.
Recovery is taking each day as it comes with no expectations and no judgement.
Recovery is knowing you matter. Knowing that your condition doesn’t devalue your worth and your importance.
Recovery is being kind to yourself and respectful of the fact you have a condition. Loving that bit of yourself too, because it is a part of who you are.
Recovery is having a panic attack, but not berating yourself afterwards.
Recovery is feeling comfortable enough to know and respect your boundaries and finding ways to work within them whilst still moving forward.
Recovery is ongoing and continuous.
Recovery is a lesson to be learned and an oportunity to grow.
Recovery is wonderful.
Recovery is yours for the taking.
