Today, my physical therapist asked me if I believed I was going to recover. If I believed in recovery at all. And I told him I do, or at least, I pretend I do. That I would never get anywhere if I wouldnt. Recovery is what we need to do ourselves, no one can ‘recover for us’. So, if even I didnt think it’d be possible to recover, it would mean I wouldnt try, and therefore it would never happen.
What a (very negative!) self-fulfilling prophecy that would be.
And what I also believe: As long as we tell ourselved often and hard enough, we will come to believe it as the truth. So, whether recovery truly is possible or not will no longer be a question, as long as we just keep telling ourselves it is, then one day we’ll wake up actually believing it and thus being able to make it happen!
