Make a pledge to yourself:

“I Pledge that I will remain open to my healing and recovery process and that I won’t give up on myself no matter how often that voice inside my head tries to talk me into giving up.”

“I Pledge that I will remain faithful in my abilities to overcome any feelings of hopelessness and sadness and that I will reach out to a friend or loved one when I become overwhelmed.”

“I Pledge that I will celebrate my successes and never devalue or minimize my accomplishments and be confident and willing to give of myself only when it’s healthy to do so.”

“I Pledge that I will honor my life and my spirit and the lives and spirits of others who are walking beside me on this journey.”

  1. Paula, you really are a rock star. I hold you in my heart with gratitude.


  2. I can definitely pledge to that! 🙂


  3. This is such a good reminder, I fall short of this so many times, but I’m a work in progress and I will get there. Thank you Paula. ❤


  4. Wise advice. My husband died 20 years ago, and I still work on these every day. Thanks for the reminder using your narrative.


  5. I really love number 2. It speaks to the idea that recovery is not a “one and done” thing. I think it is important to note that, because sometimes we get into the loop of self-judgment when we feel we should be “over” some of these feelings. ANother great posting, Paula. thanks!
