you know what? i think the best advice about mental illness recovery i can offer is this: accept the good times. let them happen. about 60% of recovery is figuring out who you are without your illness/symptoms/during happiness, and i know that’s hard and messy, but when youve struggled with mental illness for so long, you know who you are in bad times and in suffering.
let yourself figure out who you are when youre happy and at peace. you’re worth it.
