Trauma changes us and the way we see and experience the world. Recovery and healing from trauma are real and possible.
“A big part of my recovery has been acceptance and awareness … Being able to be at peace, be at ease, really is freeing.”
“My life currently is really amazing. I never imagined that I would actually live past 25…. I’m looking at my future…. the future that I see 5 years from now is so gorgeous.”
“It feels good when you can let out, If you bottle everything out its going to come out one way or another.”
“You don’t even have to say anything. You just have to listen…. just being there, helping them, showing them that you actually care.”
“Recovery had to come from within inside of me…I was able to get better and reinvent myself.”
“My recovery, I recognize, is greatly impacted by being able to help others.”
“Today I am blessed, Today I am free, Today I proudly celebrate 1071 days sober… Tomorrow is never promised, so if I don’t die today, I’ll try change the world.”
Pretty dramatic changes are possible. They take a lot of help. They take a lot of support. They take a lot of understanding.
“Life goes on after tragedy, there is hope. OCD might attack the most important thing to you, but you can beat it with help.”
