With how much is expected from us at school, at work, and even at home, things can pile up on top of us and cause stress. It’s a natural thing that happens, so don’t feel guilty for taking time to take care of yourself.

Having a lapse doesn’t make you a failure at recovery. It’s okay that you’re struggling, and more than that, it’s normal. I don’t say that to justify lapsing or use as a cop out when things get difficult. I say it as a reminder that your recovery doesn’t have to be perfect in order to produce results. That said, no one’s recovery is perfect. Everyone has set backs and reverts to old behaviors — not because we’re weak or incapable, but because recovery is one the most difficult things someone battling a mental illness can face. Your behaviors helped you cope with trauma and incredible emotional pain. They allowed you to numb out and they kept you afloat when you felt like you were drowning. Letting go of something that helped you survive for so long isn’t easy, and it doesn’t happen over the course of a few days or months. It’s terrifying and painful and unbelievably challenging, and it takes time. So be compassionate with yourself and your process. You’re doing the best you can to fight your demons and heal, and that’s all you can ask of yourself. You’re not a failure. You’re human and you’re struggling and that’s okay. And regardless of where you’re at in your recovery, you’re enough.

Sometimes the best thing you can do to take care of yourself is to ask for help or let someone else take care of you.

You aren’t alone and you don’t have to do everything all by yourself.

tips for feeling more comfortable in your body (aka tips for inhabiting a body)

  • touch your own body as you would touch your lover
  • don’t stop yourself from smiling 
  • take pictures of your body, don’t delete them
  • practice being naked without worrying about your angles
  • practice wearing whatever you want, even if it’s just in your bedroom (then maybe in your backyard, then maybe with a close friend, then maybe with a few friends, then maybe to a party)
  • when you react negatively to other people’s bodies, stop and ask yourself why you’re feeling that way
  • constantly seek to unlearn the body hate you feel for others

Take your medication ♥
