Boosting Self-Esteem in Recovery: Embrace Uniqueness

28 June, 2024Articles, News

Low self-esteem, lack of believe and faith in one self and lack of self-acceptance. 

All these add more contribution to substance addiction. 

Addiction can be a destructive replacement to a life yearning for a belonging or be a part of.

Active addiction takes away everything from the individual addicted to substances, be it dreams, goals, qualifications, money, careers, homes and even lives. That’s what addiction does it kills.

Recovery on the other hand restores lives to sanity.

Choices made in active addiction are mostly poor choices governed by insane decision making. 

Recovery builds up individuals in all areas of life.

Emotionally, physically spiritually and even mentally and it is when such process takes place that the recovering person starts to learn self acceptance, learn about having esteem in one self and embracing life a day at a time as it comes without seeking solutions from destructive habits.

Self-esteem is important, for one recovering individual is able to inspire another recovering individual through sharing recoveries possibilities. 

One way self-esteem is practice in my experience is getting the individual on early recovery stages to share in recovery meetings around a crowd , as frightened as that individual may be but doing so regardless of fear increases esteem and confidence and is able to feel inspired and also can see it meaningful to help others aswell and by so doing gets to enjoy and embrace their recovery journey and it’s uniqueness, as the recovery journey is tailor made. 

There are no shortcuts, work must be done and self-esteem, embracing recovering and being helpful all starts with putting in the work.

  • On the last day of my stint at Crossroads I could only express gratitude towards all who works there. A wise councillor once commented on my question when one is ready for rehab by explaining that when one is ready for rehab, rehab is ready for you.
