In this video, I talk about the transition I made from being “in recovery” and an active part of the recovery community to moving beyond recovery.
I offer some tips on how to make the transition a bit easier for you and also explain why this transition is important in the first place.
- As you move forward, your focus on recovery should become less and less, and your focus on life should increase.
- In order to have a “life” to focus on after recovery, you need to begin to develop one while still in recovery.
- I recommend making a list of things you want to do / how you want your life to look after recovery (hobbies, career goals, etc.) This can serve as a “vision board” so to speak.
- Remember, by transitioning out of the recovery community (or changing your engagement with it), you are not abandoning anybody (I explain in the video).
- Lastly, remember, you don’t enter recovery so you can stay there forever, you enter recovery so you can have a life afterwards!
