If you’re struggling to recover from an addiction, no one needs to tell you that there will be good days and bad days. You’re living them. What you could use is some words of encouragement. While you can’t control everything in your recovery, you can choose to have a positive attitude toward the experience. To help you with this, it’s beneficial to have a few good quotes to live by.
Powerful Quotes For Recovery
Here are three powerful quotes that may offer you some inspiration and peace as you work through your recovery.
1. “Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think”. – A.A. Milne
It’s true. You’re stronger than you think. The addiction brought you down and made you doubt yourself, and it’s easy to feel helpless and hopeless in the world. But it’s not true. You are stronger than you believe and probably feel right now. You have already gone through some of the hardest parts of recovery, including admitting that you have a problem and completing a treatment program. Each day that you get through clean and sober is another testament to your strength.
2. “Happiness is a choice. You can choose to be happy. There’s going to be stress in life, but it’s your choice whether you let it affect you or not”. – Valerie Bertinelli
The quote “happiness is a choice” is a great one to live by. It’s true that your general mood levels and well-being are partially determined by things like genetics and environment, but much is still within your control. Some experts suggest that as much as 40 percent of happiness is a choice that can be made. By changing your attitude, you can alter your life.
3. “Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself”. – Coco Chanel
The most beautiful thing you can do is be yourself. Right now, you may have a hard time looking in the mirror and seeing beauty, but it will come. Trust us. You need to stay true to yourself and allow your mind, body and spirit to heal. To help yourself on this journey, spend your early days of recovery nurturing your heart and soul. Eat healthy foods. Exercise daily. Meditate in your free time. Start a new hobby. Surround yourself with good friends. Begin to love yourself. Put the past in the past.
