i think the thing about recovery is that it’s so so important to remember that you’re achievements are still achievements, no matter how big or small, and no matter how long it took you to achieve them.
even if you cried, even if you got triggered, even if you had a panic attack. even if you had to ask for help, even if you had to start again, even if you didn’t manage it on the first try, or the second try, or the fiftieth.
you should never feel like a failure just because your achievement didn’t come easily. if anything, you should be more proud that you faced problems and achieved the thing anyway!
