Dear user1138,

That’s completely understandable! Therapy is a journey, and progress may not always be linear. It’s great to hear that you’ve made some improvements, but it’s also important to acknowledge that you still face challenges.

Remember that recovery is a process that takes time, patience, and self-compassion. It’s okay to still struggle, and it doesn’t mean you’re failing or not trying hard enough! In fact, it might look like everyone is doing fine but often, we do not know what people are truly struggling with in their private lives and behind closed doors. Don’t believe what you see on social media too. People often only post the good stuff. Reality could be quite different. Life is hard and many people are, in fact, struggling.

Consider the following:

  1. Celebrate your small wins: Acknowledge and celebrate the progress you’ve made so far, no matter how small it may seem.

  2. Be kind to yourself: Remember that everyone’s journey is unique, and comparisons can be harmful. Focus on your own growth and progress.

  3. Continue seeking support: Therapy can be a long-term process. Consider ongoing sessions or exploring different therapeutic approaches to find what works best for you.

  4. Set realistic goals: Break down larger goals into smaller, achievable steps. This can help you build momentum and confidence.

  5. Practice self-care: Engage in activities that bring you joy, help you relax, and promote overall well-being.

Remember, you’re not alone in this journey. Many people face similar struggles, and it’s okay to take things one step at a time. Keep moving forward, and know that you’re capable of growth and progress.

If you need additional support or guidance, feel free to ask. We’re here to help!
