Remember; Most of your stress comes from the way you respond, not the way life is. Adjust your attitude. Change how you see things. Look for the good in all situations. Take the lesson and find new opportunities to grow. Let all the extra stress, worrying, and overthinking go. BE AN AUTHENTIC VERSION OF YOURSELF.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. Big fan of Key & Peele, I had to share this. WELCOME TO DEMOCRACY.)

Recovery is a process-no matter what it is you’re overcoming. No one is better or greater for recovering faster. It’s not a race. You need to go at your own pace, even if that is pace is slow. There will be days when you feel like giving up-don’t. There will be days when you’re at risk of relapsing-don’t. So long as you set your own pace and never go backward in your recovery, you’re making tremendous progress, and that’s all that matters. So be proud of what you’ve accomplished for yourself.
Don’t compare your recovery process to others. Remember that each of us heals physically, mentally, and emotionally at the pace that’s right for ourselves. Give yourself the time you need and deserve.
Just remember, we are all toxic. Every single human being is capable of being toxic, has been, currently is, etc. But some people have the desire to be educated on it and do better while others will ignore any accountability and continue to act the same way.
Resting is part of the work. It’s a healthy habit. It’s essential. It brings clarity. It renews your strength. It gives you peace. It drives away fear. It creates space for GOD to do his mighty works through us.
Even if you’ve found yourself with more free time than usual, don’t force yourself too much. Taking a break is necessary. It plays a vital role in your purpose. So, slow down. Talk slowly. Relax. Give your self a break from feeling responsible for anyone else. It’s okay, don’t feel guilty for it. At uncertain times, it’s important to cut yourself some slack. Take a breath, and REST.
