“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” -Winston S. Churchill
When a person suffers from a mental illness, emotional trauma, and/or addiction, not every day is going to be a 10. Even in recovery.
There will be days that beat us down, leaving us exhausted and discouraged.
That’s when we reach out to our support network, pray to our Higher Power, and/or remind ourselves that we have made it through worse.
And then we are reassured that, like many other times, we have the quiet courage to try again tomorrow.
And we will.
