recovery quotes

You must be willing to change. You must be willing to break the deal you made with the devils within. You must be willing to leave the past and not be tempted to rebound when times are tough.

You must be willing to let go of everything and anyone that takes you back to your sins. You must be willing to have hope. You must be willing to have hope that you can change and that you will and that you will be better.

You must believe you are worthy of change and you are worthy of improvement and you are worthy of being the best.

You must be willing to set aside your negative notions about life, about hardships, about people, about things, about yourself. You must be willing to stop feeling sorry for yourself while looking at the world move around you.

Get up and make something of yourself.

—  Jack Barakat

No-one else can save you.

People will try. They will give you as much advice, tools and inspiration they can muster – but if you’re not willing to help yourself, it will all be pointless.

The amazingly wonderful news?

You totally can save yourself.

You absolutely can own your power.

All it takes is commitment, patience, and willingness to seek what is good.

The even more amazingly wonderful news?

You can start being your own hero right now, this very second.

The power is yours.

—  Jen Saunders
