You can’t drop the ball even when you think you are doing it. It may feel like you are failing on your recovery path but in reality you are not. No matter what you do or don’t do you are still moving closer to your recovery. I’ve made a hundred million mistakes throughout my recovery. Life in general is full of mistakes. It’s part of living. But things always work out in favor of your best interests. Believe this with all your heart. Once you set your goal, the universe has a way to bring you to it. Look at me now. I am recovered. I am free. And you soon will be too.
I know you are tired, and feel lost. I know you think you may never achieve full recovery. But you found this blog, you found me. YOU are trying really hard, so don’t be so harsh on yourself if you relapsed, you are doing exactly what you need to be doing right now. Try to not judge the mistakes you may have made and purely see it as another experience. When things are not going as planned, when we fall away from recovery, they are only bumps in the road. No reason for feeling guilty, ashamed and dramatic.
Don’t stress about the bumps in the road. Find ways to come back to your recovery path. Start with your mind, disregard the negative thoughts and know that you are rocking it. Even after the worse binge and purge episodes, don’t doubt for a second that you are not closer to your recovery. Even after days, weeks, months, years spent binging and purging, remember that there is a light after the tunnel, there is always a way out. You soon will be okay. Relax, it’s fine! You will be recovered! Like they say, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” And full recovery takes time.
Make sure your overall goal stays present. Don’t dwell on the mistake, think about your hopes for your future and whatever happens is just a bump in the road. It’s in the past, so go back to your recovery path. Don’t wait until the next day to do it, do it right away. And, honey, drink a bunch of water!
Making a mistake is really not that big of the deal. The sooner you learn NOT to dwell on the “mistake,” the sooner you will be back on the recovery road. Whatever your goal for recovery is, don’t forget stay strong, get your positive attitude on, don’t compare yourself with anybody and trust that you will win! You will accomplish it. You will get it. You soon will be recovered.
