🚨read with caution - nothing too graphic but it does mention ED stuff that may be triggering 🚨
anyways, not my best but it needed to be written. i am healthy but I have to learn to communicate to others the ways I haven’t always been. sometimes I forget that i am essentially an addict and just how easy it is to fall back into it if I don’t take the proper precautions. it’s hard sometimes to properly communicate to those who haven’t been there when it was bad, just how bad it *was* and that there are still things that can hurt my recovery. and that there are ways they can help me, and to be open about the things that still trigger me. something i’m still navigating but important nonetheless.
💫 tell your loved ones how they can protect your recovery. remind them that you may have healed in many ways but there will always be things drawing you back to your addiction - identify these triggers for them so they can avoid them and help you stay grounded and continue to heal. 💫 - 2 hours ago
