Today is a good day to relax and do some fishing with a friend… It’s also a good time to reflect on our success in our own recovery… Here is something to think about, Our Story. I wrote this a while back but it still has a lot of merit today.
Have you ever been depressed? Amber has and she relates how it felt: “The overwhelming stress was taking its toll. No one would talk to me. I had no clue what I was going to do! The mania was gone and the depression felt like someone had hold of me and was pushing me down. All the while, I was grabbing for some type of help, but it was getting dark, darker till all I could see was black. I would not be here today if it wasn’t for…” “If it wasn’t for…?” What was it that rescued Amber? We will never know unless she can have her experience heard; her story told!
You see as peers, our stories are more than just a fairytale. They are our life’s blood! Our motivation and our history of our move into recovery. They empower, they inspire, they give hope to others dealing with the very same thing. Reading your story just might help us all work through the darkness. You can give hope! It’s so important for people to have others who can relate, understand and empathize with how mental disorders affect our lives! We all have a story to tell. Each one is unique and powerful… But unless you speak up, your story remains silent. Here is your “personal” opportunity to help others. Inspire and give hope to your peers!
Tell me your story.
