RECOVERY: EXPECTATION VS REALITY





This picture is a really great, visual representation of what RECOVERY is like!

.

.

🗣 Many of us have this idea that RECOVERY from mental health challenges is a very LINEAR process. That it is all SMOOTH SAILING!

.

.

🗣 RECOVERY is more like the quote -

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.” 💃🏻🌧

.

.

🗣 The diagram on the right- showing lines going all over the place- back and forward, to and fro, is really what the REALITY of recovery is like. Sometimes we will take a backward step, sometimes we will fall, but each time you get back up- you can put one step forward and keep moving in a positive direction.

🎉HAVE A GREAT SUNDAY EVERYBODY🎉
