Taking It One Day at a Time
June 12, 2015 (Saint Petersburg, Fla.) — If you are struggling with pain, then overcoming addiction can seem like a difficult and bleak road. Yet the truth is there are Suboxone doctors in Pinellas Park that can assist you on your journey. Having the right attitude can be difficult.

Just as the journey of a life begins with one step, the road to recovery begins one day at a time. Contemplating your life, and the future as a whole without pain may seem like staring down an unfathomable goal. However, by taking recovery one day, or even just a single moment at a time can provide a new sense of hope. Remember, you’ll always be recovering.
Your Greatest Struggles Become Your Greatest Assets
Your body and muscles grow stronger when you use them. Our character and perseverance are the same way. No one ever got stronger from an easy life. What you are going through now will define you as the person you want to be.
We Are What We Think
Thoughts become action and your actions affect life of those around you as well as yourself. If you are consumed by negative thoughts and believe you can’t do something, then you can’t. However, it is also true that if you think you can do something, are persistent and take action then you can. Every morning look into the mirror and tell yourself, “I can do this! I am a winner!” Keep telling yourself that and it will be true.
Be Honest With Yourself You Are Your Own Best Friend
On the topic of self-improvement, ponder the things you tell yourself. Do you belittle and beat yourself up? Now imagine your partner or significant other is in your position. Would you say the same things to them that you would say to yourself? Most likely not. Becoming your own best friend and treating yourself kindly by encouraging yourself is an important part of recovery. Treating yourself with love will help you recover.
Persistence while recovering from pain and addiction is the key. Remember this too shall pass.
