Today, I’m okay. I haven’t felt this way in a long time, and I don’t know what changed to cause this. All I know is that my demons are quiet, anxiety is little to nonexistent, depression is staying away, and I haven’t yet had any sort of flashback. I feel…normal. What I wouldn’t give to feel like this every day. I know this feeling won’t last, so I’ll savor it while I can. But, days like today make me believe that healing and recovery ARE indeed possible. I WILL get better, and days like today will be an everyday thing, no a once in a great while thing. I CAN get better, recovery and healing ARE possible, and hope is REAL. Even for you, too. Recovery IS possible, I promise! You WILL get better! You CAN heal! Freedom from these demons IS possible! We CAN do this! Hope is such a tiny, fragile thing, but once it takes root, it’s hard to dislodge it. Grab onto that hope, cultivate it, help it grow, and know that you WILL be free. I promise.
Stay strong, my beautiful, wonderful, warriors. ❤
