“Patience is a virtue” is a phrase we have all heard. Although it may be cliché, it’s true! But just because it’s a virtue doesn’t mean it’s easy to be patient all of the time. Patience is a fine line. When should we be patient? When should we make a change? These are all questions we’ve pondered when trying to practice patience for something important. Patience in recovery is no different. You must be patient with yourself. But, there comes a point where you must realize if something isn’t working for you and you have to make a change. If you’re in the process of being patient, remind yourself that you are doing the best that you can. It’s not easy to be in recovery. It’s not something you can master. Walk the fine line and be strong. Know that in due time, things will work out.
Another important piece of recovery is staying balanced. You must be focused and ready to act with a level head when things get tough. You don’t want to act rashly, rather you want to have balance. So, take a deep breath and focus on one step at a time. Take a breath and a step, then take another. Although it may feel like nothing is being accomplished, focus on the moment you’re in. Take it one step at a time. You’ve got this.
Every day gives you an opportunity for growth. New challenges will present themselves. These challenges are ways you can grow in your recovery. Moving past challenges and growing in a positive direction is a great thing. Be open-minded when struggles pop up, this is the way you grow.
