recovery quotes

Stop beating yourself up. You’re a work in progress, which means you get there a little bit at a time not all at once.
I want you to know that recovery is so, so worth it. In the beginning falling back into old habits is easy and the slowness of improvement is frustrating, I know. But the moment you find yourself humming quietly to your old favourite song or dancing around with a hairbrush in your hand screaming lyrics from catchy pop songs, it will be worth it. The moment you lay in bed being excited about what tomorrow has in store for you and waking up feeling energised and ready to start a new day full of opportunities and happiness, it will be worth it.
Some days you will not find that you are the definition of greatness, and that is ok. It is a heavy head that wears the crown, so take it off sometimes. You are not defined by how well you preform everyday, you are allowed to take days off. You are allowed to be average and you are even allowed to do nothing of value occasionally. As long as you are always ready to be great when necessary, cut yourself some slack.

I hope you are blessed with a heart like a wildflower.

Strong enough to rise again after being trampled upon, tough enough to weather the worst of the summer storms, and able to grow and flourish even in the most broken places. 

Another beautiful quote, this time with pressed flowers!

worry less about what others are doing and focus on you and your own progress.

You’re doing great :))

just a quick reminder

selfishness is putting the wants of yourself over the needs of others. 

self respect is putting the needs of yourself over the wants of others.

one is disregarding others, one is taking care of yourself. 

the difference between the two is the difference between being a friend and a doormat. 

taking care of yourself does not make you a bad person

i repeat:

taking care of yourself does NOT make you a bad person
