Acceptance means many things in recovery. It means to be honest, to trust, to reconnect. Happiness can not exist without acceptance. Carol and Laurelee remind us in It’s Not About Food that during recovery, learning to acknowledge, experience, and process your feelings is a gift that will allow you to eventually let go of the struggle with food and weight.
Learning Acceptance is such an integral part of recovery! It helps us to be honest with ourselves, release our feelings in constructive ways, and most importantly opens the door to others for support us. As shown in the body love card below, we have the power to make peace with ourselves. Never stop fighting to live your truth and to live in harmony with yourself.
Acceptance of ourselves through recovery is a process - it takes dedicated time and care to heal. Are you or a loved one ready for recovery? Apply now.
