Every body is talking about love this month, especially today. They are thinking about where to go for fun, what to buy for their loved ones, or what they are going to receive from someone.
For you in recovery, what do you think about in this month of love? Maybe you are also thinking about receiving a gift from a loved one.
That is a good expectation, but even if you do not receive any gift or get taken out to lunch or dinner by anyone, no worries, because you already have the greatest gift; what is that? You are in recovery! You have won the biggest battle of your life!! You have a fresh start!!!
This is the greatest gift, and you gave it to yourself, isn’t that the greatest fulfilment? This should give you great joy.
Maintain this gift by continuing to take care of yourself; practicing your coping skills, attending your counselling sessions regularly, talking to your friends in recovery often, and always asking for help whenever you need it.
Happy Love yourself always day. Enjoy!
