“It may take some practice, but we can use these road signs to gauge our recovery progress. Initially our vision might not be clear enough to see them. In those moments we can ask our therapist, partner or good friend to help us. They can see how far we have come even when we cannot. Progress gives us hope and forward momentum. When we learn to see it then we can use it to gain even further ground.”
I love this, because it is difficult to see the progress that has already been made when we are in the midst of the struggle. Go check out the signs, and keep those lines of communication open so that others can help you see the progress when you cannot see it yourself!
