Recovery Hero Emily!

My name is Emily. After years of struggle and demand, I am beginning to peel away layers of surrender. Because of that, I have been actively clean and sober for over 7 months. I’m most proud of developing the skill that is holding space for me to process. Permitting myself to befriend the gift of time has allowed extended healing to unfold organically. The low points of my life before recovery are extensive. A sense of disassociation from myself, my loved ones, and society was my narrative. Today, I choose to be a part of it instead of feeling apart from it. I also get to relate to the entire spectrum of humanity. I hold respect for those still suffering and cherish my time spent connecting through conversation with those who have chosen the recovery path.
