I agree with this, suicides are very rare
but the courage can also be used to do CBT recovery steps which are always scary at first
Thank you for posting this! You are absolutely right, we are extremely brave for what we get up each day and not only face, but continue to try to improve. Although we've been to the worst of the worst with this, and may have given up for a day or two, or even a few weeks, we never completely throw in the towel. Eventually, we pick ourselves back up and try yet again. We are an amazing group of people and I appreciate you pointing that out!!!!!
Great post Janet. I don't think we do give ourselves acknowledgment for all we face and live through.
We need to start giving ourselves some pats on the back.
