Description

No matter what stage of our recovery we are in most of us struggle with negative thoughts about ourselves and our recovery process.  Even though it’s uncomfortable and frustrating, it’s a normal part of the recovery process.  Understanding why this happens is a first step toward minimizing the effect these thoughts have on us and leads to self-acceptance.  Self-acceptance frees us to gradually let go of the negative self-talk and affirm ourselves instead. With work and patience with ourselves these habits of thought can be changed.
