Recovery brings so much more to one’s quality of life. At times, life can be so heavy and confusing, that we can barely function. But then with an immense investment in ourselves over time and a deep commitment to healing, we grasp the fruits of our own recovery. For me, those have evolved over the years but today they are the ability to better help others using my balanced self.
