The Benefits of Change

Change can be scary! This is something we all know and have all experienced at some point in our lives. It is completely and utterly normal and even expected that we fear change during the tough times in our lives. Consider though that all of the amazing times in your life were likely the product of some level of change. Change may be scary, but it is necessary to experience growth.

Why is Change so Hard?

In recovery, change can be difficult when you don’t see the need for change. Sometimes, you may feel that getting help for addiction by participating in a 12 step program, admitting yourself to an inpatient program, or enrolling in outpatient services is enough. You may not feel it is necessary to change your habits, your lifestyle, or to purge the negative relationships in your life. That is one reason why professional help is so critical in recovery. We can’t always see outside of ourselves, and the role of a professional is to tell us what we need to hear and to take the guesswork out of treatment recovery. Learn from someone else’s mistakes and experience instead of making those costly, painful mistakes personally.

How can Change be Beneficial?

We know change is hard, but why is it necessary? Changing behaviors and changing your mindset are highly essential steps in recovery. Creating a life of sobriety that thrives in positivity, health, and growth can only occur by letting go of the past. Remember that the past is where your addiction is hiding. Your future in recovery can be found when you open your mind and your heart and embrace change. Embrace change in your life through acceptance. Acknowledge your fear of change and talk about it openly to your support system. Focus on raising your self-esteem and confidence, as they traits make you more receptive to positive change. Never forget that all you are going through will pay off and your recovery is worth it!
