Recovery Is Hard

Hiya everyone. Just before I get into this post, I thought I’d mention that I recently started a Youtube channel! I upload every Sunday (and maybe have some surprise videos as and when) so chances are, you’ve missed a cheeky upload! Please go and subscribe and show me love because it’s scary business!

Recovery is so fucking hard and I don’t think enough people acknowledge it.

I know I’m full of positivity all the damn time and say how much I love my life but the reality for most people isn’t like that 24/7. Heck it’s not even like that for me 24/7. I spout self love but I’m still struggling and have the time really hate myself. I’m still as depressed as I was prior to recovery. I’m just learning how to deal with it in a less destructive way.

It doesn’t matter what your recovery looks like to anyone. You could be doing meditation everyday or taking your medication. But whether you’ve relapsed yesterday or not relapsed at all since your journey started.

Your journey started and your recovery is valid. I don’t know whether everyone hears this enough but I just want to say I’m really fucking proud of you for choosing recovery and continuing to do so every SINGLE DAY!!

I know this is a short blog post (for once) but I just wanted to rant and rant about this and I’m tired hahhaha. I hope you’re having a lovely day!

  1. Your recovery is valid too, just in case no one’s told you that 🙂
    And you’re right, recovery is super hard but definitely worth the fight. Proud of you for admitting that it’s hard, and for getting through the things that have been thrown at you! 🙂 x
