i’m about to list the things i’m working on
things i am recovering from:
“bullying”, ie. harassment
severe depression and anxiety
contributing to the suffering of billions of people and animals for most of my life
unhealthy/abusive relationship dynamics
right now, things i’m focused on learning:
boundaries (physical, social, mental) that support my wellness
letting go of guilt – for being me, for taking care of myself, for not giving others what they want when it’s a my own expense (many women struggle with this i think)
following my own internal cues & intuition
how i am contributing to white supremacy and how i can do better
enjoying my everyday life***
things i’ve learned:
recovery is a process that continues for life
if you’ve been allowing people to manipulate you, they will respond negatively to losing their power over you. continue on your path to self empowerment. anyone who doesn’t support you in being your true self is not allowed in your space.
everything is temporary
you will be rewarded for being yourself and following your intuition. it may not be in the ways you expect. be open.
i am all i have. i will always have me & my relationship with myself is the most important thing in my life.
affirmations to help you with recovery:
I am enough.
I release the need to feel anxiety/depression/shame/etc.
I deserve to be happy. I deserve peace.
My life is my creation.
My work is in service of others. My life is in support of a just world.
I approve of me. I have everything I need.
things that support me in recovery:
loving-kindness meditation (here’s a tutorial)
taking care of myself (in whatever ways feel good)
leaving behind, or spending less time with, people or situations that deplete my energy and make me feel low
reading about self development/love/life philosophy
expressing myself through art, writing, cooking
connecting with my body by doing yoga or exercising or doing a body-scan
spending time with trees, mountains or water
lifting up others
keep moving towards your best self & being you,
