Recovery means that I'm quite human, flawed and not perfect. I still make plenty of mistakes and sometimes I utterly fail, sometimes I really succeed, but most times my life just more or less is...
I may be picking myself up and attempting to get going again. I may be trying to learn from my mistakes and shortcomings and try to make changes necessary to heal, I try to become better than I was.
