Sometimes people in recovery who are stable and mentally healthy enough to provide peer support for others start to believe they can’t “show any cracks in their armor” and always “have to have it all together.”
This is a lie told to us by our egos and by the perfectionism born of our illnesses.
Don’t listen. We are all mortal. Perfection is divine.
Seek love, support, professional help, spiritual help, and fellowship when you need it.
We all struggle in this world. And that’s OK.
