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.”

Namaste!

  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!
