Recovery is about finding your true self. By that, I mean finding things that bring
you satisfaction. Finding out what things (hobbies) bring you enjoyment, finding out what you want out of life.
Some hobbies that I have found beneficial are:
- Listening to music, but I tend to listen mostly to mellow songs
- Reading, but sadly this is so difficult for me at the moment - I do find it hard to focus
on the task in hand - I think I find it hard to just sit with myself, and be
- Photography, I have found photography to be so therapeutic for me
- Exercise, is slowly starting to become pleasurable. It was never one of my methods
of compensation, but as my previous therapist told me, that I do need to tread carefully, as anything can become a trigger,
once you have the susceptability.
I will update this as time and recovery progresses. Be sure to check back again.
