This topic surfaced a couple of weeks ago during our Peer Support Meeting. The discussion was in setting realistic goals each day. The focus was making sure the goal was achievable. It didn’t matter how small the goal but it could be done. It might be getting up at a certain time. It might be to step outside for a short time. It might be having a shower to start your day, having a bubble bath or washing the dishes.
In this way the process begins to build self-worth and confidence. This leads to creating slivers of HOPE.
Quite awhile ago one of the members talked about creating positives by viewing things as half-full as opposed to half empty. This direction is what Peer Support is all about and the Road to Recovery.
What does this mean to you?
