[THREAD] I wanted to take a moment to write a small thread about recovery, specifically the early signs of recovery. This is because even when we start to recover from issues related to our mental health, we don’t notice them and may not realize that we are on the right path.
When we are at the bottom, even small improvements may not register because our mental lens is still focused on all the “bad” that is happening. However, there are some general signs that happen for almost everyone when their recovery starts. For example, we may be slightly more
active, a slightly better sleep, appetite or energy. We can start being a little more productive even if it is just 5 minutes more a day. One of the most important signs is increase in self-care. When that increase in quantity and quality of self-care appears, it is a huge sign.
This is because mental health issues shatter our self-esteem. But an organic increase in self-care shows that we think we are worth it and increases as our recovery picks up. Another one is when we socialize more. Damages to our mental health include withdrawal from our loved
ones, so any increase in social behaviour is a sign of recovery. Please take a moment and introspect on these, whether there has been an increase in them. While emotions may still be in disarray or it may feel the same, some signs of recovery can go unnoticed. However, it is
important to recognize and start to shift that lens from “I am very sick” to “the recovery is starting”. That would help speed up the process even further. Continue your efforts for recovery, you are all worth it 😊💚
