In 5 days I’ll be 4 months cut-free. I’ve made it this long, so why am I so bloody tempted even though I’m feeling ok?!
Loving your body isn’t conceited
Feeling proud of yourself doesn’t make you a narcissist
Giving yourself credit for something won’t make you lose motivation to keep bettering yourself
Caring about your own happiness isn’t shallow
Putting your recovery first isn’t selfish
and we all feel a simultaneous punch to the gut.
