Living in recovery with trauma includes easier days and more difficult days. Being grateful for the easier days seems easier. Having both easy and difficult days is something to be grateful for. Easy days can be enjoyed and difficult days can be overcome. Living through both is a reminder that living, and thriving, is possible.

Being ‘forced’ into self-care: Recovery comes with the development of a program for self-care. Self-care is the many different ways you take responsibility for yourself and care for yourself in the way that you specifically need. People may go their entire lives without ever learning exactly what they need to feel taken care of. Self-care is a personal journey that enhances your most important relationship: the one you have with yourself.Having the opportunity to do ‘the work’: ‘The Work’ can be hard to define. It is the journey you take within yourself as you work with a therapist and engage in the many different healing modalities, as well as other therapies, you encounter in treatment and beyond. ‘The Work’ is going into your mind, your body, and your spirit to heal and transform. You are taking an honest look at what has happened to you, what has happened within you, and what you need to change. People will live their entire lives controlled by their pasts. You are finding liberation.  Gaining critical thinking skills: Recovery empowers us to think critically in a way we never have before. We learn to think critically, but compassionately, about our experiences, our thoughts, our feelings, and our behaviors. Critical and compassionate thinking helps us to see the world in a different way with more empathy than we have before.Valuing relationships differently: Recovery from trauma can make establishing relationships challenging. Boundary issues, abandonment issues, trust issues, and all other kinds of issues can arise when trying to create a relationship of any kind. You learn in recovery from trauma to value your relationships differently. You know what virtues to look for in people and what warning signs to take into consideration.
