Recovery Is Uniquie

https://nz.pinterest.com/pin/575334921122378705/

Something I've noticed over the years on the online eating disorder recovery communities also with comments on different articles and with some medical professions is I feel like people forget that everyone's recovery is different. What recovery means to someone looks and is different for everybody and also over time what that means and looks like can change and morph.

If in a recovery process of any sort I think it's important to ask yourself "What does recovery mean to me?" and to ask yourself again every so often along your journey. What works and is right for someone else won't necessarily be what is right and works for you on so many levels. Design and tailor your recovery to your needs, what you want out of it, your hopes, dreams and strengths but still be inspired and take ideas from others journeys too.  

I feel like we all to be reminded that it's vital that we respect, understand and support that everyone's different and an individual and so are recoveries.

With hope and love

  1. Very nice, reflective post, Rainbow! I think it's so easy to get caught up and think: "Why haven't I reached that point yet??" As you said - we're all different. Therefore, we go abouts things at different rates, too. And it might not even be a linear process; one week might be better than others.
