PTSD recovery is taking two steps forward, then one step back. This is the reality of it, for recovery is so very complex.
It’s changing everything about yourself – in order to survive, and this is all well and good until the inevitable happens and you are triggered by something that sends you back that step.
What you need to remember, is though you’ve taken a step back from your progress, you are still one up. You are still recovering.
If it’s a slow recovery, so be it. What matters is that you carry on the fight, ignore the steps which take you backward and pursue a happy life.
