1. What does recovery mean to you? In my opinion, recovery is a really subjective term, just like we as individuals have personal and unique struggles. Recovery generally describes the rebuilding of the self following adversity, and the inner drive which fuels us to persevere and pursue our goals relentlessly despite obstacles. Recovery to me is not about restoring myself to my original state, because struggles or traumas truly do change you forever. Instead, recovery is about accepting these changes and rediscovering and accepting yourself in the midst of difficulty. Throughout this journey, you will find that you are stronger and more capable than you ever thought, as it is this strength which has carried you safely to shore. Remember that your struggles have made you a survivor, and even if your battle has not yet ended, know that you are still the victor, because every day you are fighting for yourself :) 2.
