When I have chunks of days like I did yesterday, it’s hard for me to imagine that I’m headed towards recovery. I always feel like I’m starting off from square one and having to learn everything all over again. It feels impossible that I’m ever going to be able to Carve a life out for myself.
Then I wake up the next day and things look differently. I realize that my problems still exist, I’m still not feeling great, but I am still on that recovery road. I haven’t fallen off. This is what it looks like. Sometimes there are giant pot holes and pitfalls and I land in most of them.
I’m going to get there though. The light is dimmer on some days than others, but it’s still there.
I can still see it.
