A Reminder for Difficult Times

by MB

Recovery is a complex process that starts, but doesn’t finish, in the 28 days or 4 months or year you’re in treatment. It happens over time, and it requires a willingness to continue questioning (kindly, and without judgment) all the things you thought were true about yourself, and the world, that led to or sustained your eating disorder. The gift of looking deeply, honestly, and over time at yourself and your behaviors is the gift of true understanding and, ultimately, forgiveness.
