Relapse Doesn’t Just Happen

relapse

In recovery from any kind of illness, of course it’s natural to fear relapse.

However, with mental illnesses, relapse doesn’t just happen. If you’ve been doing the work to maintain your recovery, you’re not just going to relapse overnight. Sure, you might have lapses, slips, episodes, behaviors, etc. but all the work you’ve done doesn’t just go away.

A relapse prevention plan is great to have in place, but instead of constantly fearing what might happen, use your energy to continue to work towards what you want your life to look like. It’s hard to move forward when you’re constantly looking back.
