Redefining Our Sense of Self

Remembering Who We Are

Recovering from addiction means working towards sobriety and/or abstinence while also working to heal from all of the psychological effects of our addictions. We’ve been mentally and emotionally so impacted by our addictions that our sense of self can become entirely defined by them. Our self-identity revolves around our addictions and dependence issues. We forget who we are outside of our addictions. We don’t know who we are beyond all of the difficulties we’ve experienced in life. Our recovery invites us to reconnect with our inner selves, to learn more about who we are, and to redefine our sense of self to reflect our goals of sobriety rather than our struggles with addiction.

Reprogramming the Subconscious Mind

A powerful way of changing how we think and feel about ourselves is through reprogramming the subconscious mind, where the majority of our emotional information and memory is stored. When for so long we’ve been telling ourselves that we are the sum of our addictions, our mental health issues, our challenges and our wounds, now we can begin to tell ourselves a new truth, that we are our strength, our beauty, our courage, and our potential. We have the power to redefine our sense of self and heal our self-image. We can love ourselves for who we are, without thinking our addictions and mental health issues make us inadequate, unworthy or inferior.

The Power of Affirmations

In order to reprogram our subconscious minds, we can use affirmations that resonate with us, combining the effectiveness of repetition with the power that the written word has to penetrate deeper into our minds than mere thought allows us to go. The more we repeat an affirmation, and the more we see it visually written down, the more it seeps into our consciousness. When we give it our energy and infuse it with the power of our belief, over time we come to feel it to be true. We start to embody the affirmations we’re repeating. We see ourselves in these new self-affirming, self-empowering ways. We can mentally and emotionally encourage ourselves and believe the best about ourselves to help ourselves redefine our sense of self.

I am strong. I am powerful. I am capable of amazing things. I have limitless potential. I am coming into my strength and power. I am healing. I am becoming my truest, highest, happiest self. I love myself unconditionally.
