The first step to healing is acceptance and you have already taken that first step. Now, keep telling yourself positive things and making positive choices no matter how bad things seem. If you continue this, you will develop a positive mindset and no situation can send you back.
Signed: Dr. Bishop.
Dear Me, This year won’t be like last year. You are stronger and once you’ve made up your mind, well, it’s made up. You stick to all your resolutions and you can stick to this one. Good day.
Dear Me, Today is a beautiful day. Go outside, check on the pumpkin plant, fly a kite, make some friends. Just enjoy today. You got this.
Dear Me, No matter what your thoughts say, don’t give in. They don’t have the power to make you do anything. Enjoy your day and ignore them.
Dear Me, Dr. Bishop said to breathe. Yesterday was just a minor setback. Everyone lapses when they’re trying to recover. Breathe. You got this.
Dear Me, You can do this. All these things are just roadblocks you have to overcome on your path to victory. They’re trying to send you back to square one but you are above them.
Dear Me, The stupid pumpkin plant isn’t fruiting! Why?!
Why?! Why?! Why?! Why?! Why?!
Dear Me, You should be committed.
Dear Me, You went back to Dr. Bishop today. You even opened up a bit. I am proud of you.
Dear Me, Forget the past. Look only to the future you are planning for yourself. YOU WILL BE FINE.
Dear Me, So what if you lapsed today? Everyone has a cheat day, just take today as that day. What matters isn’t how many times you fall, what matters is you getting back up again.
October 29th Dear Me, Sometimes you need one final taste. Just this once, then you’ll stop.
October 31st Dear Me, You can’t stop… and you don’t want to.
