    For me “recovery” is different for every person. In my very humble opinion, recovery is when you get to a place where you are not just at peace with food, but with yourself. It’s when you unconditionally love and accept yourself just the way you are, establish a loving relationship with yourself, and start believing that you can achieve all of the passions and dreams that you want to accomplish in life. It’s when you start to smile again (even if for no reason) and see life as one of endless possibilities and enjoy all of the little things that it has to offer, and realize that the journey is more important than the destination. It’s about creating our own path and not caring what other people think of our choices, and just having the courage to be and express ourselves. It’s about defining life for yourself and seeing possibility in everything, and seeing that uncertainty can bring about life’s greatest moments. It’s about forming loving friendships and find the “right” person (which I haven’t), and just rejecting all those destructive things like perfectionism, judgment of yourself and others, and all forms of negativity. For anyone to try and define recovery in a uniform or objective way is to degrade, demean and insult everyone who has struggled so hard to overcome their eating disorder.

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful view on recovery. I definitely agree with you, Adam, that recovery is something that is very different for each person. I believe that for me it was about learning who I am, learning to trust myself and my body, and nurturing a loving connection between these. It is being able to believe in the Universe and let go and surrender without having to control or complain. There are so many finer aspects of recovery that go way beyond the obsession with food and the body. It is truly learning how to live life in a way that is fulfilling and that creates peace and happiness – which is something that is unique and different for every single person in recovery! It’s refreshing to know that we can make recovery (and our lives) whatever we want them to be.
