A month or so ago, I presented a topic where in the first hour we started letters to our younger selves. Part of the point was to show to ourselves just how much we have grown and how far we have come. It was also to show those that perhaps were still in the beginning of their recovery that there was a light at the end of the tunnel. That things can get better if you put in the work.
DBSA national has an entire series of these letters to my younger self, accompanied by podcasts from many of the authors. If you are feeling down, these can be inspiring stories that may help lift you or just get you through your day. Click on this link to go to the “Letters to My Younger Self” page.
