Just being present and having life experiences sober is a big part of recovery. In active addiction we often disconnect from our loved ones because we are so consumed by the energy it takes to just get through each day. In recovery we take it one day at a time, but we learn to make the days count!

Honesty time: December is personally a difficult month sometimes, and with all that’s happened this past year I find that I’m feeling particularly vulnerable right now. I have ups and downs, positive streaks and low set backs. I’m trying my best, but there are still days I feel very alone, and unable to reach out and ask for help. I exhaust myself trying to assist, please, or be all I can for everyone else, then feel like an empty vessel, having given all of myself away. I worry too much about what others think of me, and I carry others problems as if they’re my own. I’m learning balance, and trying to build up my shell. It’s a process. . I know I have love and support from the people who care about me, but it’s still difficult for them to understand, which is lonely. So I’m admitting that I’m having a tough time, and expressing to myself and the world, that moving forward I need to live my life for myself. . It’s ok to say no. It’s ok to admit when someone said something hurtful, because your feelings matter too. It’s ok to turn the world off for a while and just be by yourself, if that’s what you need. Nobody else will ever fully understand you, so you’ve got to create a space to feel like you understand yourself. . These reminders are what I’m choosing to focus on moving through the rest of this year, and into 2018. . I’m choosing to try to to protect myself. I’m trying my best💙 . . . . . #honesty #selfawareness #depression #personaljourney #mentalhealth #endthestigma #repost #thirdeyethirst PC: @third_eye_thirst
