When I finally understood that the path back to health needed to be a case study of one, that freed me from the burden of the ‘holier than thou’ judgments. But it took conscious effort to ignore – to not give my consent for others to label me as inferior.
Another quote of Eleanor’s helped me through that time as well. “Do one thing everyday that scares you.” It took a great deal of courage to let go of so much in order to focus on getting well again.
