  • Take the time you need. Take the time to catch your breath. You will need to be well rested to prepare for what comes next”- MHN.
.
This quote from @morganharpernichols hit me a little harder than I thought it might. Taking this summer to work on myself has been challenging in unexpected ways. I didn’t expect to feel so guilty for not working. So guilty for putting off regular plans for going out, setting more boundaries that are necessary but that I also fear are pushing me away from others.
.
I didn’t expect recovery and healing to be so time consuming, mentally consuming, on your mind even when you don’t want it to be, and sometimes not when it should be.
.

There is no shame in prioritizing yourself- only peace, rest, and healing. There should be no guilt or fear over advocating for what you need, whether it is space, a new routine, someone to hold you accountable, or just someone to hold you, period. You owe no one an apology for doing what you need to do in order to heal, even if no one else understands why you need what you do. You owe it to yourself, your dreams, and your life.
.
It’s a process in and of itself, learning how to advocate for what you need, being okay with slowing down, knowing that the work you put into yourself now will be beneficial, even when it feels as though the opposite is occurring. Prioritizing  myself and my healing now will only mean better things for my recovery, the start of nursing school, the future of my relationships, and my future as a whole.
.

I have so much life ahead of me, life that I refuse to live chained or even partially chained to my eating disorder. Getting to that point requires a huge amount of what I used to consider to be selfishness on my part, but what I am now realizing are just self-love, preservation, and kindness, all pillars of recovery and of a  lifelong positive relationship with yourself.
