The more we learn about our addictions and mental health issues, the more we come to understand the power of our minds to either contribute to our healing or to our suffering. We also make our struggles a lot worse with the thought patterns we’ve adopted and continue to perpetuate. Our minds contribute to our issues, then exacerbate them and even help fuel our addictions. The great news is that we can retrain our minds to think in ways that will help us along in our healing rather than contribute to our pain and self-destructiveness.
There are certain beliefs we adopt when it comes to our addictions, depression and other mental health issues. What do you find yourself saying to yourself repeatedly that has then formed your beliefs about yourself and your ability to recover? You might find that you call yourself an addict, and that you do so in disparaging, unkind ways, with a punitive and blaming energy. You might find that you call yourself weak, that you feel powerless, that you also feel like a victim. If so, then here are some affirmations you can use to retrain your mind for healing. The more you practice them, then the more you will be able to change how you think, feel and direct your energy, which will make all the difference in your recovery.
