As you’re continuing along your recovery journey, there’s going to reach a point where you feel stuck.
It seems like you smacked right into a brick wall and you can’t move past it. No matter what you do, you can’t seem to get over it, around it or under it. It’s completely holding you back.
Trust me, I get it. I’ve been there.
It’s overwhelming, exhausting, and discouraging.
I’m here to tell you that you’re not alone and it’s possible to bust past it.
The very first step is to get very comfortable with and reconnect with your why.
I know, it’s not the most fun or the most sexy thing. But it’s incredibly powerful.
Ask yourself why you want to recover.
Why is now the time? Why are you committing to this?
Keep asking why. Keep digging deeper.
Why do you want to get past this block?
Why do you want to let go of this fear?

I’m right in the middle of this myself. I’ve been single for three and a half years and I’ve grown SO much. I finally feel ready to get back into the dating scene and try to connect with my person. But that absolutely terrifies me. I can’t seem to get myself to open up to the idea that good people exist and that one of those good people is out there looking for me.
So I’ve been spending a lot of time digging into my fear and not just pushing past it. I don’t want to this to be a point where I self sabotage and ruin something that may potentially be good.
Why do I feel ready to date? Why do I want to find my person? But why am I ready to trust the right person?
The deeper I dive into these questions, the stronger I’m going to grow in my conviction to put in the work. But not only that, the root of the block is in there somewhere. Once I dig deep enough, I can pull the block out by roots.
It’s easier said than done, I get it.
But I know that it’s worth it.
Take the time to dig into your why. Once you do, you’re going to find so many pieces of yourself you didn’t even know were there.
You’ve come so far. Don’t stop now.
You’ve got this, boo!
