Recovery means finally being honest to my self. Transforming the knowledge of my abuse into understanding. It is shedding those things that helped me survive but now hold me back.

Recovery means finally having an inner peace and a sense of normalcy.

Recovery means being comfortable with one's overall identity, personality and faith in oneself, others and God.

Recovery means not trying to figure out past issues and shedding one's insecurities once and for all.

Recovery means being able to breathe for the act of just breathing and not for the necessity to compose oneself's emotions.

Recovery means overall happiness.

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.

Recovery means thinking about now instead of then.

Recovery means feeling the emotion of happiness without the burden of self loathing and being defined by the abuse.
