Re: Turning Negatives Into Positives

Negative: I seen fine on the outside but really I'm breaking down. Am I getting better or is it an illusion. 75days for what. It would be so easy to give in, to give up...
Positive: it's ok to cry. It's ok to feel pain. I'm taking steps toward my recovery. Recovery was never meant to be easy, and but in the end these days will 've worth it. I can't give up or give into these urges. I gotta keep fighting. Hope - Hold On, Pain Ends

Re: Turning Negatives Into Positives

One day, one hour, one minute at a time @redhead. Do what you need to do to stay safe and make it to 76 days. Recovery isn't easy but you're committed to it, and you've achieved some huge milestones to be proud of. Sending you my biggest, brightest healing and positive vibes.

Re: Turning Negatives Into Positives

@ElleBelle thanks. Lifeline was pretty useless tonight, but I promised to stay safe. I'm just gonna head to bed and try to forget about everything. Sleep is always good.

Valid safety plan @redhead. I wish you many restorative zzzz's and pleasant dreams.

Re: Turning Negatives Into Positives

-  My mind does not end up in good places. Even when there's no reason for it to go up the shady alleyway, it seems to be over curious and drawn towards the menacing shadows.

 

+ What I think about is my choice. If I don't want to do it, I just have to stop thinking it.

Re: Turning Negatives Into Positives

It takes light as well as dark to create shadows @Bay52VU. It's good that you acknowledge that your thoughts can just be thoughts, even when they are dark, and that they don't require action. You might not always be able to control where your mind goes, but you can control how you react to and cope with those thoughts.
