Don’t Apologize For Your Recovery

Don’t ever apologize when you are stating your needs, this includes your recovery. If you are in recovery, be proud of it! Recovery is a huge step to take. You shouldn’t feel like you have to apologize for your choices. Setting boundaries is a huge part of staying on the right path. 

You know you and you know your body. Once you establish boundaries, you must be regimented and follow them. Don’t let anyone else push you to do something you know you shouldn’t be doing. You’ve set boundaries for a reason — stick to them!

Setting healthy boundaries are important. Are you unsure of what your healthy boundaries look like? Here are a few tips:

1. Don’t be afraid to say no

Saying “no” to someone you love can be a really tough thing. You may not want to create conflict in your relationship, so you may give in and agree to something that isn’t healthy for you. We are here to tell you that you shouldn’t be afraid to say “no!” 

2. Don’t be afraid to tell someone when you need space

Creating space, whether it be physical or mental, can also be a hard thing to establish when you’re learning to set boundaries. Saying “Today is not a good day for that” or “I need some alone time tonight” is okay. Try not to feel guilty when you set these boundaries. You may feel as though you have let your friend down, but really, you will be letting yourself down if you allow them to overstep your boundaries. We are here to help you establish necessary space.

3. Don’t be afraid to stick up for what you feel you need

Realizing that you have to be your own voice may be something that you are not used to. That’s okay! Taking control of your life is a step in the right direction. Try not to be afraid of stating your needs and sticking to them. We are here to help you set these boundaries!
