Help

Recovery is scary, confusing and lonely. But recovery is created by you. So here’s to defining a “normal state” in terms which are special to you.

We sometimes perceive asking for help as a sign of weakness, when it fact it’s the complete opposite. Asking for help is a sign of wanting to improve yourself and being wise enough to know you can’t always do it alone.

Success doesn’t come easily. Happiness doesn’t come easily. Loving your life doesn’t happen in a day, or in a year. That’s why life was meant to be a coin toss. To shake you around until you finally find your place. To show you that failure will one day lead you to your destiny. And to show you that hard work, the dirty and exhausting work you are doing right now, will one day be all worth it.
